Myth #5: Scrumban is reserved for maintenance development.

Myth #5 perpetuates the notion that Scrumban is solely for maintenance projects, implying its use is limited to the post-release phase of product development. This is a misconception. Scrumban is equally effective in active development environments, particularly where teams encounter:

  • Frequent shifts in priorities,
  • A high volume of unplanned work,
  • The absence of a single Product Owner or the presence of multiple decision-makers,
  • Regular changes in team composition or fluctuating team sizes,
  • Sprints that do not align with release schedules.

In such scenarios, Scrumban's flexible framework can better accommodate the dynamic nature of the work, streamlining processes and improving adaptability.
