Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) Group Training

The Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) course helps your organization improve value delivery and predictability. Scrum teams use the Kanban method to enhance the flow of work within the Sprint. Common Kanban practices include:


  • Visualizing workflow.

  • Limiting work in progress.

  • Monitoring flow metrics, including lead time, Work Item Age, and Cycle Time.

  • Clearly defined policies.

Using the Kanban method, Scrum teams can enhance team policies, improve predictability, and deliver value sooner to the organization. This PSK course includes illuminating exercises to practice new organizational methods. Participants engage in conversations to deepen their understanding of key Scrum and Kanban concepts. ​
