Course Overview

PSK Banner

We all know these principles of the Scrum Framework; try to make Product Backlog Items as small as possible, limit your 'work on progress'. It sounds so simple. But many Scrum Teams find this incredibly challenging. That is why Scrum.org has developed the Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK)-course. This course is here to help Scrum Teams optimize their flow and - as a result - become more predictable and reliable.

The 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.org worked with Daniel Vacanti (ActionableAgile) and Yuval Yeret (PST) to create this course. Daniel has been heavily involved with the development of Kanban since 2007 and managed the world's first project implementation of Kanban.

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 losing the value team's receive from Scrum.

In this extra-special class, Daniel Vacanti will pair-up with Scrum.org's Christiaan Verwijs and Barry Overeem to teach an extra interactive version of this course.

Price: EUR 1495
