Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) Course

Professional Scrum™ with Kanban (PSK) Course Overview

The Professional Scrum with Kanban™ course (PSK) is a two day teaching event that helps Scrum practitioners understand how to apply Kanban practices to their work. Through an interesting and engaging mixture of Scrum with Kanban theory, case studies, and hands-on exercises, participants on the Professional Scrum with Kanban will learn 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 such as Kanban. Scrum teams keep improving how they work, based on what they learn by inspecting and adapting on an ongoing basis. Kanban can be used with Scrum to improve the effectiveness of a Scrum team’s delivery of value.

This PSK course has been created and maintained by Scrum co-creator Ken Schwaber, along with the PST community, and Daniel Vacanti, who in 2007 helped to develop the Kanban Method for knowledge work.

The process helps to ensure that the PSK course is always in tune with what’s happening in software development organisations and always up-to-date with the latest practices.

This PSK course also includes two free attempts at the globally recognized Professional Scrum with Scrum ertification exam (PSK I).
