Applying Professional Scrum 

Applying Professional Scrum (APS) is a 2-day course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product delivery efforts. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).

Over the 2 days, students experience Professional Scrum: learning the framework and gaining insights into overcoming complexity, with team-based collaboration and self-management as essential elements in mastering Scrum. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a product, thereby facing real-life problems. The rules, roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings so students grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. The course provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off track and keep Scrum healthy.


Professional Scrum with Kanban 

Professional ScrumTM with Kanban (PSK) is a 2-day course that teaches Scrum practitioners how to apply Kanban practices to their work. Through theory, case studies, and hands-on exercises, participants will understand the importance of transparency and flow as it pertains to the Scrum framework.

In this class, students will learn how additional practices from Kanban can be introduced into their Scrum Teams without changing Scrum.  They will learn how to add the right practices and the benefits that their Scrum Teams can achieve from using Scrum with Kanban.

These classes are taught by our in-house certified professional scrum trainer
