Why we switched from Scrum to Kanban?

The IT industry has experienced an exponential growth in the last decade. In software development, there has been an increased demand for efficient, just in time (JIT) delivery.

Today, clients have a continuous change in priorities which affects the dynamics of the team and requires a frequent adaptation. The pressure for flexibility is immense. But, how flexible can you be with a process so structured like software development ?

The story about our distributed team connecting Skopje and Tbilisi

Skype calls and Slack channels are a great way to connect the members of a distributed team. But nothing is better than the sound of clinking glasses mixed with laughter.

The product teams are dispersed between these two locations and their daily tasks are most often interdependent. To make this possible we use various communication and project management tools that enable a seamless workflow.
