We all know these principles of the Scrum Framework; try to make Product Backlog Items as small as possible, limit your 'work on progress'. It sounds so simple. But many Scrum Teams find this incredibly challenging. That is why has developed the Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK)-course. This course is here to help Scrum Teams optimize their flow and - as a result - become more predictable and reliable.
Learn to optimize flow with Kanban
The Professional Scrum 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. worked with Daniel Vacanti (ActionableAgile) and Yuval Yeret (PST) to create this course. Daniel has been heavily involved with the development of Kanban since 2007 and managed the world's first project implementation of Kanban.
In this class, students will learn how Scrum Teams can introduce additional practices from Kanban while continuing the way they are already working today with Scrum, all without losing the value team's receive from Scrum.
In this extra-special class, Daniel Vacanti will pair-up with's Christiaan Verwijs and Barry Overeem to teach an extra interactive version of this course.

Can I Pay By Invoice?
We love simplicity. Booking through EventBrite is both simple, safe and fast. You also automatically receive a VAT invoice from us. If you are unable to pay - for example because others have to do this - we can send you a manual invoice. Please contact us at and let us know the name of your company, the address, a purchase order (when relevant) and the VAT-number when your company is EU-based. Because this process is manual and requires manual checks, we add an administration fee of €100,-. When your organisation requires vendor registration, longer payment terms, split invoices or signed vendor agreements, we add a complexity fee of €100,-. In other words, your organisation can save money by keeping things simple.
Who are we?
As The Liberators, Barry Overeem and Christiaan Verwijs take a radical approach to organizational change. Rather than taking the lead, they empower people within organizations to drive change themselves. As facilitators, they create space where people can tackle difficult challenges together while also having fun. Inspired by the fields of complexity science and organizational psychology, they use frameworks like Scrum, Lean Change Management and Liberating Structures to deliver fast-paced interactions, high involvement, and creative destruction.
With a strong focus on radical transparency, an experiential approach and creating a shared purpose, they put organizations in a position to thrive on complexity rather than being defeated by it. Are you ready to leave your comfort zone and unleash your superpowers?
