Course Introduction
Hi, this is Milena Pajic from Pluralsight, and welcome to the course Customizing Your Team Workflow with the Best of Kanban and Scrum. In this course we will cover three modules. The first module will be Kanban and Scrum - Making the most of both. The main goal of module one is to get you familiar with both Scrum and Kanban by comparing the two. This should give you a good idea which one to choose in which situation. In the second module, Kanban from the trenches, I will show you in the example, from my experience, how you can successfully implement Kanban. At the end, in module Kanban and Scrum tools for software development, I will make an overview of available boards and tools on the market that you can use for Scrum, Kanban or both. Kanban and Scrum are very popular these days but most teams have doubts about which one to use. By the end of this course you should have enough information to help you set up the process methodology that best suits your environment. I will assume that you are familiar with Scrum and Kanban and their basics, still I highly recommend checking out two other Pluralsight courses. Kanba Fundamentals by Steve Smith, where Steve demonstrates the basic principles and concepts of Kanban and applies them at the individual and team level. And Scrum Fundamentals by David Starr, where David introduces the business case for Scrum, the course Scrum framework and the row ingredients for bootstrapping Scrum in your organization.

Kanban and Scrum - Making the Most of Both
Hello, I'm Milena, and this is a module about similarities, differences, and advantages of Scrum and Kanban. If you have any doubts about choosing and applying Scrum or Kanban in your team and process, this module should help you make this decision easier. In this module, I will talk about the team size, the project type, about the visual representation of your work, a need for regular meetings and the possibility of having them. I will also talk about the durations, estimation, and reporting and metrics. These are the things that can affect your decision on what to choose: Kanban, Scrum or to make the most of both.

Kanban and Scrum Tools for Software Development
Hello, I'm Milena, and this is module about tools that you can easily use to set up your Scrum or Kanban project. In this module I would like to present you four tools that I find very good and useful. These are LeanKit, Kanbanery, Excel, and AgileFant. Please note that there are other tools on the market that are equally good or better, or not so good like the ones I will demo to you today. I decided to show you these four because I really like to use them and because I just want to give you enough information so that you can have a starting point. I encourage you to use the same way that I will in this module in order to explore many other tools that are available on the market.
