Professional Scrum with Kanban
Live Virtual Class, February 27-28, 2024
Join Professional Scrum Trainers Todd Miller, Ryan Ripley, and Daniel Vacanti in this online event. Every participant will receive a digital copy of Ryan and Todd's book "Fixing Your Scrum: Practical Solutions to Common Scrum Problems" as well as digital copies of Daniel Vacanti's books "When Will it Be Done" and "Actionable Agile Metrics".
The 2-day Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) course teaches Scrum practitioners how to apply 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.
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.
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.

All participants completing the Professional Scrum with Kanban course will receive a password to attempt the PSK I assessment. The industry-recognized PSK certification requires a minimum passing score on this rigorous assessment.
The Professional Scrum with Kanban course is an advanced course designed for experienced Scrum Practitioners who have a good understanding of the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for Scrum Masters.
Scrum.org is governed by the originator of Scrum, Ken Schwaber, and as such instructs students on the very core of Scrum. The material content is consistent with all scrum.org trainers, but many brilliant minds have contributed to the training material. The material is intended to transform the way you approach work, not just instructional on the mechanics of Scrum.
Scrum.org trainers have all been rigorously assessed by the scrum.org committee through exams, interviews, mock training, and other means. Less than 5% of those who apply are accepted as trainers.
