Abstract
Agile methodologies embrace project management methods, techniques and tools that seek to continuously improve products; ensure the agility of project scope, performance of self-organizing teams and the release of quality products. Scrum and Kanban are two of the most popular agile methodologies which IT companies use to develop software products and improve the management of their business processes.

The aim of this paper is to suggest an agile methodology that combines Scrum and Kanban elements and techniques. The methodology has been deployed in the Customer Service Department of an IT company in order to improve team management and optimize the performance of the department. In result of employing the suggested agile methodology to the management of business processes in the department, a high degree of awareness about the progress of ongoing tasks has been achieved.
