My team/organization is just starting to use agile principles. The team consists of a few business analysts that support three development teams by fleshing out requirements. I'm new to the team and the first product role in the organization.We currently have issues limiting work in progress and getting colleagues to commit to deadlines. My experience with Scrum is extremely positive and I'd like to get our team using scrum principles. Currently Kanban is used and Scrums is viewed with trepidation.Could you highlight a few limitations of kanban-only processes, and how you see scrum as an effective way of working?Thanks,CJ

i recently became certified as a PSM. i work in an IT org who hasn't yet adopted scrum. i work on a portfolio management team and one of our initiatives is to convince and guide the leadership to adopt a full agile/scrum transformation. i am on a personal mission to equip the teams with scrum values and scrum principles in small ways with every interaction. What i'm up against is a culture that works with a project mindset not a product mindset. the leaders and stakeholders are more concerned with meeting due dates and overlooking the importance of quality and speed of delivery. what advice do you have?
