Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a long-term plan for your scrumban projects? Sure you have already read all about scrumban and enjoyed all the perks this methodology offers, but if you miss long-term insight you used to have, you may be surprised that there is still some things left to discover.
As you know, scrumban is based on planning on demand. The buffer triggers planning, once the backlog is empty, and guarantees that there is still work remaining to be done by the team in the meanwhile. However, by definition this planning focuses solely on the next best thing for the team to work on, simply disregarding any other planning as having no value. Therefore in this way only the most immediate plans are made, while anything not in the nearest future is forgotten.
