Scrum and Kanban are both steadily becoming more popular. When to choose one over the other? Context Matters I do not prefer Scrum or Kanban. It does not make sense to say one is better than the other. It all depends on the context. Slippers are great in summer. Uggs are great in winter. Uggs still look hideous in all seasons though☺. The same holds for Scrum and Kanban. The context and expected outcome determine which method will likely perform better.
