Class Overview

Professional Scrum with Kanban

Guaranteed to run!  Increase predictability & efficiency in your product delivery

Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) is offered in four half-days, and it introduces class participants to good Kanban practices in the context of a professional scrum team. Students should leave with a better understanding of what good Kanban looks like and a reinforced understanding of the importance of the Scrum framework's rules. Students will be equipped with practical knowledge to implement Kanban with their Scrum Teams.  They will be able to leverage Kanban to increase the predictability and efficiency of product delivery so that they don’t lose the benefits of Scrum.

In general, scrum practitioners face 2 major challenges with Kanban:

  • The misinterpretation that the Kanban is different and at odds with Scrum. 
  • The misinterpretation that Kanban is only a delivery method for interrupt-driven work such as maintenance or support.

Common myths debunked during class:

  • Kanban is a task board.
  • Work in process limits are immutable.
  • Kanban is a process change mechanism.
  • Scrum teams only benefit from Kanban within a sprint.

Through experiences, you'll learn the positive impact of introducing flow to Scrum’s Events (including inside and outside of Sprints) and the value of adding Kanban from the perspective of Scrum’s Roles. By the end of this course, you will how Kanban can be useful in solving core flow issues and evolving towards a continuous flow of delivery while continuing to benefit from the Scrum Framework.
