We had a lot of open discussions and had great, interactive group activities.

Professional Scrum with Kanban Course Content
Professional Scrum Primer
This course is for those who already have a good understanding of Scrum and wish to utilise Kanban techniques to augment that. This section of the course is a quick recap on what Professional Scrum is and how that understanding is unchanged when we apply Kanban practises in addition.
Kanban theory principles and practices.
We define and explore base principles and practises of Kanban and look at concepts like Batch Size, WIP and Cycle time. We also refer to the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams.
Kanban in Practice
In this session we explore the mechanics of pure Kanban using a simulation or game to see the effect of Kanban practices and start to think about how Kanban might impact our Scrum.
Scrum with Kanban
Here we explore how some of the various elements in Scrum don’t change but are impacted when we add Kanban. What this means to the visualisation and definition of our workflow, the impact to the sprint Backlog.
Introducing Flow to Scrum’s events
Understanding the Impact to all the Scrum events: Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, Sprint Retrospective. Using the flow metrics in the different Scrum Events
Flow/Kanban from the perspective of the Scrum Team
We explore how are the various team members and their accountabilities in Scrum impacted when you add Kanban practices? How can they use these new insights to work smarter and improve the flow of value?
The increment and the Sprint
What a focus on flow means to our transparency and ability to deliver more frequently and how it might progress us along a journey to Devops.
Professional Scrum with Kanban Outcomes
Delegates, therefore, leave with provided practical insights into the mechanics and practices of Kanban in the context of a Scrum Team.
They learn how to add Kanban to Scrum in a way that provides the maximum benefit without having to unlearn Scrum. Experienced practitioners leave with renewed confidence and a collection of new techniques to try.
We can offer Professional Scrum with Kanban training as a private Live Virtual Classroom for distributed teams. For more information on what we can do for you and your organisation, please enquire.
