Professional Scrum with Kanban


  • Duration: 2 days
  • Language: EN
  • Certificate included

Discover how to improve flow for Scrum Teams and also maximize performance: Scrum makes you work more efficiently, while Kanban enhances the process to make your Scrum Team more productive. Our Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) training allows you to deepen your knowledge of Scrum and Kanban, expand your skills, and benefit from both worlds. Your Scrum-based focus remains on the process and the way your team collaborates. At the same time, Kanban’s transparent visualization methods help make better predictions with less effort, for both your team and your stakeholders. Kanban’s flow metrics can enhance the way you coach your team to uncover better ways to collaborate within the Scrum framework and provide an excellent alternative for Velocity and Story points. Scrum.org certificate included.

The 2-day training program is a mix of theory, case studies, and hands-on experience that will help you understand the importance of transparency and flow. The theoretical part of the course creates a solid foundation for learning how to integrate Kanban in a variety of Scrum practices. Its practical orientation ensures that you will be able to apply Kanban’s visualization methods more effectively. The training covers various aspects of working with Scrum and Kanban, like understanding and applying the Scrum framework, developing self-organizing teams, product management, and Kanban’s theory, principles, and practices.
