Proponents of various processes and methods in the agile and lean communities have made many bold claims about usefulness, but those claims are rarely supported by empirical investigations. Data gathered from more than 12,000 work items collected over two years sheds light on Kanban versus Scrum.To acquire more knowledge about the performance of different agile or lean methods, scholars should conduct similar studies in different organizations in different application domains and with people of different cultures and competences.
