Professional Scrum™ with Kanban Certification

PSK Certification Badge

Prove Your Knowledge of Using Scrum with Kanban

The Professional Scrum with Kanban™ (PSK I) certification validates your knowledge of how Scrum Teams can use Scrum with Kanban to support value creation and delivery. 

PSK I ensures that you understand how Scrum Teams can use Kanban.  Many questions ask you to think about or interpret scenarios based on theory from the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams and the Scrum Guide.

PSK I also tests your ability to apply concepts from the PSK subject areas and in some cases, apply your own experience. While attendance is not a prerequisite, taking a Professional Scrum with Kanban class is highly recommended.

PSK I is grounded in the Professional Scrum with Kanban subject areas: 

  • Understanding and Applying the Scrum Framework:
    • How Scrum and Kanban can be used together for greater benefit without compromising the core tenets of either Scrum or Kanban
  • Complementary Practices:
    • Kanban Practices
      • Knowledge of the Kanban practices listed in the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams
    • Agile Metrics for Kanban
      • Knowledge of the required metrics listed in the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams and how to use them effectively

Unlike other Scrum certifications that are awarded for attendance in a class, earning a certification requires proof of knowledge and understanding by passing the certification test. You can take the Professional Scrum certification test whether you have attended a class or not, though each training class is a great learning experience and includes a free attempt at the associated certification.

Protecting the integrity of the certification process is very important to us. By taking a test with you agree to abide by our Standard of Conduct. You will not receive information about the specific questions that were answered correctly or incorrectly, however  you will receive a breakdown of your performance based on the Professional Scrum Competencies.
