Scrum.org Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) – Indianapolis – August 2019
August 12 @ 8:00 am - August 13 @ 5:00 pm
It isn’t about Scrum OR Kanban anymore. It is about how to bring them together effectively. In The Professional Scrum with Kanban™ (PSK) class, Scrum practitioners learn how to define and visualize flow using Kanban together with the Scrum artifacts, limit Work in Process, actively manage and improve the flow in Scrum’s events, and what their role would be when it comes to inspecting and adapting the Scrum Team’s workflow whether they are Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Development Team members or other stakeholders interested in improving flow in their organization. This PSK class in Indianapolis is presented by Yuval Yeret, PST at AgileSparks and PSK Steward together with Ryan Ripley, PST, founder of Ryan Ripley & Company.
IS THIS PSK TRAINING FOR ME?
The Professional Scrum with Kanban course is an intermediate/advanced course specifically designed for experienced Scrum Masters, Leaders/Managers and other Scrum practitioners who have a good understanding of the Scrum framework and are interested to learn techniques for improving flow in a Scrum context. It is also a good fit for SAFe practitioners looking to improve their team-level practices and Kanban practitioners looking to add the power of Scrum.
Over the 2 days, Scrum practitioners learn how to apply Kanban practices to their work. Participants will learn flow theory and Kanban principles, play an immersive Kanban simulation, build Kanban boards for their Scrum teams, learn patterns for how to infuse Kanban’s thinking and practices into the Scrum events, artifacts, and roles. There will also be time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) to provide coaching on flow challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today or may in the future.

WHY SCRUM.ORG TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION?
Scrum.org is run by the co-creator of Scrum, Ken Schwaber. He also maintains the Scrum Guide. The organization is run by folks who eat, sleep and breathe Scrum and it shows in the carefully crafted curriculum and examinations.
It ain’t easy. Your Scrum.org certification will hold more credibility with employers because you don’t receive it automatically after taking a course. You must pass the certification exam. Your PSK training gives you an excellent shot at achieving certification.
Scrum.org’s courseware is uniform and rigorously updated and fine-tuned to ensure every participant receives valuable and actionable training from Professional Scrum Trainers. To be clear, uniform doesn’t mean boring! It means quality!
