Agile approaches: Agile Scrum, Agile Shift, Kanban and more

Agile approaches: Agile Scrum, Agile Shift, Kanban and more


Sometimes also referred to as agile methods or frameworks.  The aim of the table below is to explain the intent and differences across some of the more commonly used or referenced agile approaches.

The two most common approaches often referenced are Scrum and Kanban.  Though since their introduction, new and in some cases more ‘targeted’ approaches have evolved to provide guidance on adopting agile ways for specific business environments or challenges.  We suspect new agile approaches will continue to be introduced over time, each attempting to adequately serve a required business function.
