Why do some teams opt for kanban instead of sprint planning?

#sprintplanning is an incredibly valuable part of the #scrumframework, and when done correctly, it provides the team with clarity about what the #sprint will focus on achieving, and what items from the #productbacklog are most valuable to customers, stakeholders, and the #productowner.

That said, there are times when teams decide that #sprintplanning isn’t working as effectively as they would like, and working to a specific #sprint cadence isn’t a great fit for the team, and so they explore other opportunities to enhance their performance.

#kanban is one of the options that #scrumteams sometimes choose in place of #sprintplanning and a #sprint cadence. In this short video, John McFadyen explains why #scrumban has become a popular choice for #scrumteams that are experimenting with different options.
