Description

During this cutting-edge two day online Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) training course, you will learn how to apply Kanban practices to Scrum. The Professional Scrum with Kanban PSK training course offers an interesting and engaging mix of theory, real-life Scrum with Kanban case studies, and a myriad of hands-on exercises, that will help you understand the importance of transparency and flow as it pertains to the Scrum framework.
