Professional Scrum™ with Kanban

Professional Scrum™ with Kanban


There are many benefits to optimising the flow of work in Scrum by leveraging Kanban practices. Professional Scrum™ with Kanban is a 16 hour course where students learn the benefits of using Scrum and Kanban together and optimising their workflow by adding four Kanban practices to Scrum:

  • Visualising the workflow on a Kanban board
  • Limiting Work in Progress (WIP)
  • Actively managing work items in progress
  • Continually inspecting and adapting the way the team uses flow optimisation

By leveraging these practices, teams improve transparency, collaboration and self-management, ultimately improving their ability to achieve Sprint Goals at a sustainable pace. In addition, this course focuses on helping students track and manage flow metrics to provide more predictable delivery patterns, ultimately helping them overcome common delivery challenges with getting to “Done”. Finally, students will leave with a better understanding of what good Kanban looks like and how to implement it within a professional Scrum environment.

What do our students say about our training?

Great mixture of interactivity and passive learning, even so it was remote it didn't feel as tiring as Zoom meetings normally are
