How would you use flow-based agile with cadence? That is a tailoring option but they're opposites

One particular example that I can give is the use of ScrumBan which is very commonly used in projects. ScrumBan is a tailored framework which has certain aspects from both Scrum and Kanban, hence the name ScrumBan. Since Kanban is a flow based flavor of Agile and it doesn't have a set cadence of delivery, its blended with Scrum. In Kanban, there are no sprints while in Scrum we do have sprints (anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks). In ScrumBan we use the "Board" with different columns such as (To Do, In Progress, Done), just like we use these columns on a Kanban board, we could apply WIP limits to the columns (another concept from Kanban) and have a potentially shippable increment at the end of the sprint at a set cadence. I hope this explanation would have answered your question.
