Continuous work with planning on-demand and detached releases once the product is ready.
Scrumban does not have any predesigned roles. Teams can choose to keep their previous roles or adapt those used in Scrum.
Scrumban does not have defined iterations. Instead, the team plans based on demand and releases once the product is ready.
