Scrum.org has announced its new Scrum with Kanban course to teach individuals and teams how to use Scrum with Kanban practices, without changing Scrum. Scrum.org has collaborated with Daniel Vacantito create the course. In 2007 he helped develop the Kanban Method for knowledge work and has been conducting Kanban training, coaching and consulting ever since.
Scrum Teams primarily use Scrum as a framework to address complex problems to deliver products of the highest possible value. As Scrum Teams evolve, they learn by constantly inspecting and adapting – the key pillars of Agile and Scrum – to improve how they work. This often leads teams to incorporate other practices, including some of those from Kanban, Continuous Delivery, Story Mapping and others. The Scrum with Kanban course is specifically tailored to Scrum Teams who want to use Kanban to learn a practical approach to improving transparency, flow and visibility of their work, without changing Scrum.
Kanban’s practices don’t require changes to the Scrum framework as defined within the Scrum Guide, making them complementary for software delivery teams to further guide their empirical and adaptive processes. Unlike standard Kanban classes, Scrum with Kanban will show Scrum Teams how they can introduce additional practices from Kanban, while continuing to work within the Scrum framework.
In addition to the new course, Scrum.org has also released a number of assets to learn more about Scrum with Kanban in its Resource Center. These assets provide best practices and guidance for Scrum Teams looking to add Kanban practices to how they work today. Scrum with Kanban classes are now available privately for organizations and public classes will be listed on the website soon.
Based on the values and principles of Scrum and the Agile Manifesto, Scrum.org provides comprehensive training, assessments and certifications to improve the profession of software delivery. Throughout the world, our solutions and community of Professional Scrum Trainers empower people and organizations to achieve agility through Scrum. Ken Schwaber, the co-creator of Scrum, founded Scrum.org in 2009 as a global organization, dedicating himself to improving the profession of software delivery by reducing the gaps so the work and work products are dependable.
