While Scrum's primary goal is organization and project management, Lean is more about optimizing processes in order to quickly produce quality products. It can.
Hoang-Anh Phan's insight:

The move from scrum to kanban is even more efficient because the scrum team has likely already reached a sustainable pace. Eliminating overload is a pre-requisite to eliminating waste and improving the flow.
