Scrum was first developed in the 1990’s by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland to address the shortcomings of waterfall project management methods in the delivery of software projects.
A major goal of Scrum was to deliver high-quality deliverables in weeks, rather than months or years. The Scrum Method helps teams achieve this goal through an approach rooted in empirical process control which focuses on transparency, inspection, and adaptation.
At Solü, we have found that Scrum is ideal for projects that are complex, have a high degree of uncertainty, or require significant research and innovation.
The core of Scrum is the Sprint. Sprints are time-boxed iterations of one month or less during which a team completes project deliverables that are release-ready. Over the course of a project, every sprint has the same duration and consists of a standard set of meetings, typically called ceremonies.

At Solü, we prefer to use Kanban for production support or business-as-usual activities that are typically repetitive or have frequently changing priorities.
Based on lean manufacturing methods developed by Toyota in the 1950’s, the Kanban Method focuses on visualizing workflow to improve operational efficiency and reduce work-in-progress duration. This method of agile delivery uses a simple visual representation of deliverables and their status.
The Kanban method in action:
