Wrike

Both Scrum and Kanban fall under the Agile methodology umbrella, making them good frameworks for breaking down larger, complex projects into manageable chunks. What is a Scrum Board? Scrum, originally created for software developers, is based around time-limited work periods, called sprints, which normally last around 2 weeks. The “Scrum Master” is responsible for the process itself, making sure the team is upholding the values and best practices of Scrum.

Kiron Bondale

Transparency is so critical that the Scrum Guide lists it as one of its three pillars and it is similarly echoed in the reference materials for many other agile delivery methods as well as in PMI’s Code of Ethics. They will also benefit if the higher levels of trust which result from increased transparency encourage enterprise groups to lean out governance requirements by focusing on the few outliers rather than punishing the majority.
