Professional Scrum with Kanban
Live Virtual Class, May 23-24, 2024
Improving Flow for Scrum Teams
Always wanted to know how to use the Kanban principles and practices to optimize the flow of your Scrum team? How to use several Kanban metrics to measure flow?
Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) is a 2-day course that 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 and practices. Scrum Teams keep improving how they work, based on what they learn by inspecting and adapting on an ongoing basis.
What You Will Learn
Students will learn how their Scrum Teams can introduce complementary practices from Kanban while continuing the way they are already working with Scrum, all without changing Scrum. In this class, students will:
- Gain a clear understanding of how flow works within the context of Scrum.
- Be introduced to Kanban practices that Scrum Teams can adapt to help improve their effectiveness and efficiency.
- Understand how to effectively use appropriate Kanban practices without changing Scrum.
- Learn a practical approach to improving transparency and visibility for their work.
- Get introduced to useful metrics in order to get more insight into flow.

Andy is a highly experienced Professional Scrum Trainer with Scrum.org and a Professional Kanban Trainer with ProKanban. He wrote the book "Applying Scrum with Kanban"... so he knows a few things or two.
Andy's career has taken him on a journey from late 90’s web development through professional organisations such as Nokia and IBM to now, where Andy is a professional trainer, coach and consultant. Along the way Andy learned XP, Scrum and Kanban ‘hands-on’, through leading teams of people developing complicated solutions in complex product and service delivery environments.
Andy now works with teams of people at every level to help them work smarter towards achieving their goals. Whether that's through professional personal and group coaching; or coaching Kanban with Professional Scrum, it's always based upon client and customer outcomes in mind.
Andy also has a family with two little boys and a dog called Rocky in Bristol, as you can well imagine, that keeps him pretty busy one way or another.
Steve is an experienced Scrum Master and Professional Scrum Trainer with 20 years plus of experience in delivering complex products in many different business sectors. He started his career as a software developer, working for Nestle before moving on to work for Sky building applications & websites for many of the English Premier League football teams.
Previously being a developer, Steve has worked in various teams (Scrum and none Scrum) so comes packed with real-life stories. From Start-Ups building the next social media network, up to large corporations handling thousands of transactions a second. If you want to learn from someone who has been there, then Steve would be able to share experiences to help you on your way.
In May 2004 and after spending 6 months working on a very demanding & soul destroying project Steve decided to look for a better way to deliver products. It was either that or leave the industry. This led him to look into Agile approaches and in particular Scrum - his aim was to know to empower teams and individuals to make the right choices at the appropriate time.
Over 16 years later on from 2004, Steve's focus is still on helping individuals & teams to reach their full potential through professional development coaching and professional training.
