Professional Scrum with Kanban
Live Virtual Class, May 4-5, 2023
Apply Kanban Practices and Improve Flow in Professional Scrum
Professional Scrum™ with Kanban (PSK) is an interactive, activity-based training course that teaches experienced Scrum Masters and other Scrum practitioners how to improve the way they work by applying Kanban practices in the context of Professional Scrum. Through theory, case studies and hands-on exercises, students will learn how Kanban practices can help Scrum Teams achieve better outcomes by improving the flow of work. Organizations using DevOps, Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) will find adding flow to their application of Scrum to be a natural complement.
The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK I) certification exam.
There is a myth that teams need to choose between using Scrum or Kanban. There are many benefits to optimizing the flow of work in Scrum by leveraging Kanban practices. In this 2 day* training course, students will learn the benefits of using Scrum and Kanban together.
Students will learn how to optimize their workflow by adding four Kanban practices to Scrum:
- Visualizing the Sprint Backlog workflow on a Kanban board
- Limiting Work in Progress (WIP)
- Actively managing work items in progress
- Continually inspecting and adapting the way the team uses flow optimization
By leveraging these practices, teams improve transparency, collaboration and self-management, ultimately improving their ability to achieve Sprint Goals at a sustainable pace. In addition, this course has a focus on helping students track and manage flow metrics to provide more predictable delivery patterns, ultimately helping them to overcome common delivery challenges with getting to “Done”. Students will leave with a better understanding of what good Kanban looks like and how to implement it within a Professional Scrum environment.
Scrum.org and our Professional Scrum Trainers have worked with Daniel Vacanti and Yuval Yeret in the creation of this course, leveraging their Kanban expertise and knowledge. In 2007, Daniel helped to develop the Kanban Method for knowledge work, including managing the world’s first project implementation of Kanban. Yuval, the author of "Holy Land Kanban" is a recipient of the Lean Kanban community Brickell Key Award for his work helping establish a strong Kanban community with several enterprise product developments in Israel and worldwide. In addition, all trainers of this class must have real-world experience in both Scrum and Kanban.
