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.
The Professional Scrum™ with Kanban course is designed for experienced Scrum practitioners who have a good understanding of professional Scrum and a desire to learn how to implement Kanban practices with their Scrum Teams. Ideally, attendees have read the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams and have passed the PSM I assessment.
