Scrum with Kanban

Professional Scrum with Kanban™ (PSK) Training with Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Professional Scrum with Kanban™ (PSK) training, as well as other Agile and Scrum courses, through a partnership with an authorized Scrum.org Kanban trainer. The Professional Scrum with Kanban™ (PSK) training can take place at our location in Farmington Hills, 20 miles outside of Detroit, or onsite at your office anywhere throughout the United States.

While many Agile trainers fly into metro Detroit to deliver Scrum and Agile classes at a hotel, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community.   We continue to sponsor regional Agile conferences and meetups. We have successfully run Agile and Certified ScrumMaster courses for multiple teams in the Great Lakes area.

Why Professional Scrum with Kanban™ (PSK) training?

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, you will learn: 1) how to define and visualize flow using Kanban together with the Scrum artifacts, 2) how to limit Work in Process, 3) how to actively manage and improve the flow in Scrum’s events, and 4) what your role will be when it comes to inspecting and adapting the Scrum Team’s workflow.

Is this PSK workshop is for you?

The Professional Scrum with Kanban course is an intermediate/advanced course specifically designed for experienced ScrumMasters, 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 Scrum practitioners looking to improve their team-level practices – and also a good fit for Kanban practitioners looking to add the power of Scrum.

There will be time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainers to provide coaching on flow challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing.

Assessment and Certification:

All participants completing the Professional Scrum with Kanban course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK I) assessment. These industry-recognized certifications require a minimum passing score.
