Improving Flow for Scrum Teams

Always wanted to know how to use the Kanban principles and practices to optimize the flow of your Scrum team? How to use several Kanban metrics to measure flow?

Professional Scrum with KanbanTM (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 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.  Scrum Teams keep improving how they work, based on what they learn by inspecting and adapting on an ongoing basis.
