I want to implement a E2E dev process that is basically divided in three phases. 1. Discorvery-Phase in Kanban, 2. Delivery-Phase in Scrum for the development and 3. a Deployment-Phase in Kanban. It seems that it is not possible to put Scrum in the middle of two Kanban Boards, because Scrum wants to have a Done Status to close the Tickets. We do not want to close the TIckets in our 2. dev process. Instead the Tickets should go forward to the 3. phase - all this as one E2E process. Any suggestions? Would be nice ;-)
You can do this, because there's a trick in understanding what "done" actually is - there are two possible meanings for it.
In most cases, people will try to keep the meanings the same, so they don't have to think too much about it. The difference here is that
The "done" on a board does not have to be "done" for an issue. It just means "done for this team"
So, I am going to define a very simple workflow and how you could configure your three boards.
I am going to assume each of your boards are very simple, and have "to do", "in progress" and "done" as a column.
The simple workflow is New -> In Discovery -> To develop -> In development -> To deploy -> Being deployed -> Closed (Note I've deliberately used "closed" as a status, rather than "done" to keep the column and status definitions clearly sepated)
So, for board 1, the Discovery, you set up the columns with status:
So, for board 2, the Developer Scrum
So, for board 3, the Discovery, you set up the columns with status:
