In order to choose the type of project that suits your business workflow, it is important to understand the differences between the two approaches.

The Scrum project type

First, it is important to note that Scrum is one of the most popular frameworks for implementing Agile and rightly so as it is used to develop complex products and systems. Many frameworks can be used to implement Agile, such as kanban or eXtreme Programming (XP) for example. The whole idea behind Agile Project Management with Scrum is to give the end users exactly what they want. This can be achieved by the Scrum team (Product Owner, Scrum Master and the Scrum development team) through "Sprints" or continuous feedback and iterations. Sprints are meant to be short, but regular, cycles of no more than four weeks for which a significant product increment is expected to be presented. 

So, when is Scrum appropriate? In situations where you have a long product development cycle before the project is completed and the product goes through a variety of iterations, Scrum is the way to go.

The Agile approach

If you don't feel comfortable with the Scrum framework, or if the context of your business does not apply, the Agile approach Nutcache offers has all the flexibility to carry out your projects regardless of the nature of your projects. Apart from using the Kanban method to visually manage your projects, you can also benefit from 12 templates that reflect the workflow of various types of business, such as communication/graphics agencies, architects, software development, sales department, HR companies, etc. to help you manage your project. Each template can be customized to your business workflow or you can create your own template. In short, the Agile approach can handled any type of project.

In addition, the Agile approach lets you take advantage of a powerful visual project planning tool: the Agile Planner. Project managers can use this tool to see at a glance the tasks their team members are currently working on, but also the tasks that have not yet been assigned.
