Why should a Scrum team learn Kanban?

With the introduction of Kanban trainings for Scrum teams, the inventor of Scrum, Ken Schwaber, officially recognized the value of Kanban for Scrum teams.

Scrum is a fabulous way to organize a team to deliver value and quality consistently, and it is extremely flexible. Within a Sprint, a Scrum team can organize their collaboration in any way that helps to achieve the Sprint Goal. Kanban can provide the visibility, clarity, and flexibility that a team needs to do that, even in the face of new information or priorities.

I was a Scrum Master on many Scrum teams for years before discovering Kanban. It addressed so many issues that I was having with reporting, predictability, overburdening, and delivering faster. It helped to establish trust with new clients early in the process by delivering working features earlier in a Sprint. It felt like Scrum's missing superpower.

In this workshop, we'll teach you to improve visibility into your team's process so that everyone on the team can make better decisions, communicate and collaborate more effectively, and forecast more accurately. You'll learn to improve your retrospectives with metrics that make it easier to identify opportunities for improvement and to demonstrate which improvement decisions are effective.

You could learn Kanban for Scrum from a Scrum trainer. But why not learn it from a seasoned Kanban professional, who also has a decade of experience managing Scrum teams?

Only the first twenty people will be admitted
