Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK)

Apply Kanban practices and improve scrum flows.

Professional Scrum ™ With Kanban (PSK) is an interactive training course based on activities that teach experienced Scrum masters and other Scrum practitioners how to improve their working skills by applying Kanban practices in the context of Professional Scrum. Through theory, case studies and practical exercises, students will learn how Kanban practices can help Scrum teams get better results by improving workflow.

Organizations using DevOps, continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) will find that adding flow to their scrum application is a natural supplement.

There is a myth that teams must choose between using Scrum or Kanban. Optimizing the workflow in Scrum by taking advantage of Kanban practices has many advantages. In this 2-day training course*, students will discover the benefits of using Scrum and Kanban together.

Students will learn how to optimize their workflow by adding four Kanban practices to Scrum:

  • Visualize the Workflow Sprint Backlog on a Kanban Table
  • Limitation of current work (WIP)
  • Actively manage the current work elements
  • Inspect and constantly adapt how the team uses flow optimization

By taking advantage of these practices, the teams improve transparency, collaboration and self-management, thereby improving their ability to achieve Sprint objectives at a lasting pace. In addition, this course aims to help students follow and manage flow metrics to provide more predictable delivery models, ultimately helping them to overcome current delivery challenges by going to “finished.” Students will leave with a better understanding of what a good kanban looks like and how to implement it in a professional scrum environment.

Scrum.org and our professional trainers Scrum worked with Daniel Vacanti and Yuval Yeret to create this course, using their Kanban expertise and knowledge. In 2007, Daniel helped develop the Kanban method for intellectual work, particularly by managing Kanban’s first implementation project worldwide. Yuval, the author of “Holy Land Kanban,” is a recipient of the Brickell Key Prize in the Lean Kanban community for his work helping to establish a strong Kanban community with several business product developments in Israel and worldwide. In addition, all the trainers in this class must have real-world experience in Scrum and Kanban.
