Professional Scrum with Kanban

PSK | 2 Days | Advanced | Team

Course Overview

The 2-day Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) course teaches Scrum practitioners how to apply Professional Kanban practices to their work. Through theory, case studies, and hands-on exercises, participants will understand the importance of transparency and flow as it pertains to the Scrum framework.

The Scrum.org mission is to Improve the Profession of Software Delivery

Scrum is the defacto standard for how Agile teams work. Scrum exists only in its entirety and functions well as a container for other techniques, methodologies and practices. Scrum Teams keep improving how they work, based on what they learn by inspecting and adapting on an ongoing basis.

Learn Scrum from those that created and maintain it and Kanban from those that developed the Kanban Method

In this class, students will learn how Scrum Teams can introduce additional practices from Kanban while continuing the way they are already working today with Scrum, all without changing Scrum.
Scrum.org and our Professional Scrum Trainers have worked with Daniel Vacanti in the creation of this course. In 2007 Daniel helped to develop the Kanban Method for knowledge work. He managed the world’s first project implementation of Kanban that year, and has been conducting Kanban training, coaching, and consulting ever since.
