With the backlogs, each month you *promise* how much you'll do, and
pull a *batch* of items from the product to the sprint backlog.
You're now locked.
With kanban, you pull directly from the product backlog to the
work list, one at a time. There is no work estimate attached to the
item - you just work on it till you're done, then pull the next.
Some teams put size limits on the work list, so you can't work on
more than e.g. 5 items at a time.
That's quite a difference.
