      The kanban is continuous pull, the backlog is batch pull.

      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.
