Topic: Scrumban: Effectively Combining Scrum and Kanban


Teams using Scrum sometimes struggle with operational or emergent work blowing up their sprint plans.

As DevOps delivery is increasingly used by organizations, the need for Scrum teams to accommodate operational work also increases. After all, it does not matter how interesting that new feature is if production is down.
