Scrum与产品创新

VUCA时代的产品

产品(Product)是用来满足人们需求和欲望的物体或无形的载体(服务)。虚拟产品和服务将会越来越多占据人们的时间。然而产品研发中,需求文档永远没法完全被理解,实际用户在看到实物之后可能都不知道自己要什么,充满交互的系统(软件系统,以及近在眼前的AI人工智能、VR虚拟现实)永远无法被精确定义和测试。产品及产品研发从来都是创新,没有哪个产品会和昨天完全一样,那样的话只要复制就行了。既然难以复制,所以如果太过关注于效率,就很难有好的效果。在充满变化和不确定性的情况下,产品研发工作会迅速地进入Cynefin框架中的复杂和混沌领域并不断进化。

VUCA和互联网时代,问题、方案、人员、环境很多都越来越难以琢磨,昨天的成功不可重复,甚至昨天的经验可能是明天的阻碍。所谓不确定性,其实是没有加上时间维度。学会做时间的朋友,从不确定中找到确定性,一切就容易多了。在物理学中,单独测量一个光子的偏振方向,每次得到的结果都是随机的,但是结合时间维度长期来看,测量结果是有规律的、符合概率的,于是人类就可以“控制”量子了,从不确定中获取确定的收益了。大家也可以看看《反脆弱》这本书,期权投资获利也都是这个道理。

“尊重人”与“持续改进”

30年前,流水线制造是工业社会主流,成本效率优先。两位学者Takeuchi和Nonaka于1986年在“哈佛商业评论”发表论文《新的新产品开发游戏》(用了game一词,现在的Scrum实践也称为Game Rule,这不是巧合)。开篇提到“在当今快节奏,激烈竞争的商业新产品开发世界中,速度和灵活性至关重要。 公司越来越意识到,开发新产品用旧式、顺序的(比如Waterfall/PMP/CMMI或任何预先计划的方法论)方法根本无法完成工作。需要一种整体类似英式橄榄球(Rugby)打法,球队作为一个整体,不断传球的方式。”

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.

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.
