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

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,在线学习和视频学习不能超过17个,且每个类别也有上限(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,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。

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.

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。
