Improving Flow for Scrum Teams

“Yes, it is possible to have a successful Sprint yet not achieve a sustainable Flow… What is this concept of Flow? Why is this so important and how can Scrum benefit from it?”

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.

The course also includes two free attempts at the globally recognized Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK I) certification exam.

Who Should Attend

The Professional Scrum with Kanban course is an advanced course designed for experienced Scrum Practitioners who have a good understanding of the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for Scrum Masters.
