Yes, I know it, but I think I can use Kanban for all the activities scheduled, similar like scrum.

I agree with Mr. Conte. To be able to use any methodology effectively and determine which is the best methodology to use, you must have a good grasp and understanding of its principles.

Kindly check the the link to the blog that would help you compare the two methodologies: scrum vs. kanban.

Yes. Kanban is a collection of practices to make your process visible and gives you signal to limit work in progress.
It shows what you are doing right now, and shows areas to improve as you learn about the system.
We have Free Online Program on Kanban which can be good starting point for knowing Kanban.

Kanban additionally pulls motivation from the supermarket demonstrate: for greatest proficiency, convey sufficiently only on your racks to take care of clients demand. Along these lines, in Kanban, rather than furrowing ahead on delivery a total venture, you can leave assignments for cheap essay writing services at different stages until the point that they're required—regardless of whether that is half-made, low-request parts in a production line, un-altered blog entries in your line without a distribute date, or whatever else that is sitting tight for a need in your work process.

Not only CAN you use Kanban you SHOULD use Kanban. Even if you don't get fully into Just-In-Time delivery or WIP limits there are some things that you can use.

1) Information Radiator - A kanban board will immediately make your process visible to all. You'll immediately see bottlenecks and other things you haven't seen before. (ex. If this issue is truly critical, why has it been in this step in the process for 90 days?)

2) The physical act of moving things to done! Your team will be able to quickly pivot to an agile mindset of prioritizing work and getting more done instead of getting more started.

Kanban or Workflows?—?whatever you might call it?—?the technique of using flexible boards has become the go to option for managers to streamline their work.

Kanban boards fit in the requirements of every team. Whether you are running a small team of just a few people or handling multiple teams, these boards can be the savior to bring peace in your life.

Here’s how -
1) A board is worth a thousand words
One of the first things you will notice when you start using a Kanban board is that everything is presented in the form of beautiful boards. The visual appeal of the tool makes it a strik option to manage the way you run your team and plan your work. Just like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, we’d like to say that a board is even more than that. Just a glance at the board gives you idea about how things are moving in a project. How many tasks are in progress, which task is in which stage, which ones are complete and more. Everything you need to know about the project?—?you can see it without grappling.

2) So easy even your grandma can use them
The best thing about a kanban board is their simplicity in usage. There is no learning curve. It’s like your entire project has been divided into stages. All your tasks are categorized in boards, with team members assigned to each of them.

3) Changing priorities will not give you sleepless nights
thanks to agile method of workflow on which kanban boards run, it becomes easy to manage the changes. As everything is available in a visual format even the minutest change in tasks gets reflected on these boards. And, the people associated with that particular task / stage get notified in an instant.

4) Work will flow, so will you and your team
The biggest change you will notice when you get your team on to using Kanban boards is that work will start to flow. Bottlenecks will become less as everything is visual. You will be able to see which task is in which stage. And, if it stuck in one stage for long you can ask the person accountable for it about the same.

Hope this help you to take decision.
