What is Team Kanban Practitioner and Certified ScrumMaster Training?

Modern work management is based on Lean ideas and techniques. To be successful we need to reduce waste and shorten lead times.

The two leading methods in use today, Kanban and Scrum, are implementations of these Lean ideas. However, they are often seen as competitors, instead of stablemates. Many have found that real success comes from knowing when to apply Scrum, when to apply Kanban, and when and how to blend the two.

This three-day course is designed to show how and why to bring these ideas together. And, as an added bonus, attendees will be eligible for both Certified ScrumMaster certification from the Scrum Alliance and Team Kanban Practitioner certification from Lean/Kanban University. We will cover and discuss the CSM and TKP learning objectives.

The course will begin with the Lean Pillars, a set of self-sustaining ideas upon which a successful organization can be built.

Next, we will take a detour into Complexity Theory to help us understand the forces that cause us to choose either Kanban or Scrum.

Using those forces, we will see how Kanban and Scrum work. We will see common elements and the places they differ, and how we can use them together. We will see how to use Scrum’s Roles and Ceremonies to bring some organization to Kanban and how to use the metrics that drive Kanban to improve transparency when using Scrum.
