Professional Flow Metrics for Scrum

Professional Flow Metrics for Scrum

Prove Your Kanban Knowledge and Get Certified

The Professional Flow Metrics for Scrum (PFMS) assessment is available to anyone who wishes to validate their depth of knowledge of using flow metrics for scrum teams or within a scrum framework. Those who pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized PFMS Certification to demonstrate their knowledge of applying flow metrics to scrum events.

Taking a course is not required and if you feel that you already possess a high level of knowledge, understanding of metrics, and how to apply them to scrum, you have the option to take the PFMS assessment directly.  However, there are courses available to help you prepare for the assessment and gain a stronger understanding of practices.
