9 Reasons Why I Decided to Become a CSP

申请要求

  • 拥有CSM/CSPO/CSD认证之一,且未过期
  • 过去5年内,至少有36个月的时间在组织内成功地应用Scrum
  • 在过去3年内积累70个SEU学分。已经获得的课程认证可以提供了一些学分哦。CSM (16 SEUs), CSD (24 SEUs), CSPO (16 SEUs)

申请过程

一次性申请费用(申请时支付,不退还)为$100, 认证费(通过评审之后支付)为$150。

你可以在Scrum Alliance网站上找到自己的dashboard页面,点击”Apply for CSP Certification” (在”Actions”按钮下)。填写你的36个月的敏捷经验,以及所扮演的”Scrum Role”。还要提供个人简介和联系方式。

申请过程中,评审者可能随时向你会询问和澄清一下内容。

如何积累SEU学分

在70个SEU中,分几个类别,几乎每个类别有上限(防止偏科)。你可以在Scrum Alliance网站上找到自己的dashboard页面,点击”Add new SEU” (在”Actions”按钮下)。

  1. A类(不超过45个)。参加各种ScrumAlliance支持的社区大会,例如Scrum Gathering大会。每个小时算作一个SEU。
  2. B类(没有上限哦,至少14个)。参加Scrum Alliance授权的课程,例如CSM等认证课,或者像上海优普丰这种REP合作伙伴提供的非认证课(如进阶敏捷教练课程),还有就是接受CTC认证教练的Coaching辅导也可以哦。
  3. C类(不超过15个)。参加非Scrum Alliance机构举办的敏捷相关课程或活动。
  4. D类(不超过15个)。参与敏捷社区志愿者服务。
  5. E类(不超过15个)。独立学习,如准备一个Scrum相关的演讲,写文章,看视频,读书等。每个小时算作一个SEU。
  6. F类(不超过15个)。其他集体学习,如共同培训(co-train),参与网络课程等。每个小时算作一个SEU。

How did I grow up to an agile coach

Beginner to Agile

I joined Nokia Siemens Networks in 2007 when Agile had been promoting in the whold 3G Platform product line. In that period, there was few company dare to do large scale agile promotion globally. I obtained Certified Scrum Master(CSM) certification in 2008. During my career in Nokia Siemens Networks, I have been working in various roles such as Senior Software Specialist, Line Manager, Quality Manager, Project Manager, Scrum Master and Agile Coach, and had luckily worked with a lot experts in Agile. It is notexaggerate to say that Nokia Siemens Networks is like the Whampoa Military Academy of Agile in China. As per myself, I have learned and improve a lot as well in management skills, empowerment, lean concept and system thinking. In technical engineering practice, I had fully understood and adopted the concept of Continuous Integration, which is one of the useful practices in eXtreme Programming(XP). Automation Test and Refactoring was applied in my daily work as I awared the importance of Agile of Engineering Practice. The later LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum) Framework is basically originated and summarized from Nokia Siemens Networks’s experience on Organization level Agile.

Python之禅

保持简单、追求简单,我想这就是编码之中的禅,一种回归本真的境界。这种禅意在 Python 的设计哲学中体现的淋漓尽致,在 Python 解释器中输入“import this”,便会出现经典的 Python 之禅。

Beautiful is better than ugly.
优美胜于丑陋。

Explicit is better than implicit.
显式胜于隐式。

Simple is better than complex.
简单胜于复杂。

Complex is better than complicated.
复杂胜于难懂。

Flat is better than nested.
扁平胜于嵌套。

Sparse is better than dense.
分散胜于密集。

Readability counts.
可读性应当被重视。

Special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules. Although practicality beats purity.
尽管实用性会打败纯粹性,特例也不能凌驾于规则之上。

Errors should never pass silently. Unless explicitly silenced.
除非明确地使其沉默,错误永远不应该默默地溜走。

In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
面对不明确的定义,拒绝猜测的诱惑。

There should be one– and preferably only one –obvious way to do it.
用一种方法,最好只有一种方法来做一件事。

Although that way way not be obvious at first unless you’re Dutch.
虽然一开始这种方法并不是显而易见的,但谁叫你不是Python之父呢。

Now is better than never. Although never is often better than right now.
做比不做好,但立马去做有时还不如不做。

If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea.
如果实现很难说明,那它是个坏想法。

If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
如果实现容易解释,那它有可能是个好想法。

Namespaces are one honking great idea – let’s do more of those!
命名空间是个绝妙的想法,让我们多多地使用它们吧!

初识敏捷

2007年我加入诺基亚西门子通信,正好赶上3G Platform产品线全面推广敏捷,那个时候在全球真正敢于大规模推广敏捷的大型公司并没有几个。2008年时我获得了CSM认证。在诺西那几年我陆续担任过高级软件工程师、资源线经理、质量经理、项目经理、ScrumMaster、敏捷教练等职位,也和很多敏捷方面的专家共事过,不夸张地说,诺西真的可谓中国敏捷的黄埔军校。至于我个人,在管理方面,学会了更多授权、精益思想和系统思考。在技术和工程实践方面,全面地接受了XP中持续集成的理念,将自动化测试和重构融入到了日常工作中,认识到技术敏捷性的重要。后来的LeSS框架基本上就是诺西那几年在组织级大规模推广Scrum的经验教训的总结。

远程协作大成功!台湾某Scrum虚拟项目团队的奇幻之旅

为什么转这篇文章

原文作者周龍鴻(Roger)是台湾敏捷与Scrum的推广者和践行者。去年与他合作过以Scrum方式组成远程虚拟字幕组,合作完成Spotify系列视频的中文字幕翻译,免费回馈给海峡两岸的敏捷社区。

最近,他和台湾的小伙伴再次出发。这次他们组成了多个虚拟Scrum团队(你可以称之为规模化敏捷部落:p),采用远程协作的方式共同对《ISO 21500 项目管理标准》进行翻译、修订,递交台湾”国家标准检验局”,成功通过审查成为台湾的”国标”(CNS)。

这些小伙伴没有报酬,全凭热情工作在一起,认真地践行Scrum和敏捷工作方式。从Roger的故事中,以及后半部分志愿者的心得中,整个过程的辛苦和收获,更能感受到他们的用心、严谨和喜悦!

征得原作者同意,我将此文《我在CNS Scrum專案的奇幻之旅》转到墙内,让大家了解到Scrum不仅仅限于IT软件领域。希望更多人能够和他们一起来享受这个敏捷奇幻之旅,用敏捷来改变大家的工作方式,改变世界。
