敏捷项目迭代过程中测出缺陷要不要在看板加一列Bug List?

说说我对于迭代过程中测出bug这件事的看法:先不论开发测试是不是独立团队,也不争论Scrum与看板方法(两者都是遵循精益思想),测出的bug分几种情况处理:

  1. 如果产品负责人/产品经理判断立刻要改,那么就是个阻塞项,贴红色标记,留在当前列里面不回流,不修好这个item不能称为完成
  2. 如果判断说根本不是bug,那么直接丢弃
  3. ROI不高的鸡肋,狠心丢弃(断舍离),实在太纠结就重新回到Product Backlog待办列表一列,待将来重新排期(虽然很可能再也不会改了)

为什么这么做?

霍金带你逃离时间的黑洞

摘要:时间黑洞带来拖延症,Scrum敏捷工作方法基于时间盒理念,帮助你高效搞定工作,达到事半功倍的效果。

2018年3月14日,霍金飞去浩瀚的宇宙了

斯蒂芬·威廉·霍金(StephenWilliam Hawking),1942年1月8日出生于英国牛津,英国剑桥大学著名物理学家。主要研究领域是宇宙论和黑洞,证明了广义相对论的奇性定理和黑洞面积定理,提出了黑洞蒸发理论和无边界的霍金宇宙模型,在统一20世纪物理学的两大基础理论——爱因斯坦创立的相对论和普朗克创立的量子力学方面走出了重要一步。他21岁时患上肌肉萎缩性侧索硬化症,全身瘫痪,不能言语,手部只有三根手指可以活动,仍然在轮椅上坚持为人类带来《时间简史》、《果壳中的宇宙》、《大设计》等科普巨著。作为那些书的读者,也看过2014年上映的霍金传记电影《万物理论》,其成就和经历颇令人唏嘘感动。

时间黑洞就在每个人手中

根据热力学第二定律,时间是单向,正如每个人从出生、长大、老去,是不可逆转的方向。时间对每个人都是公平的,好过歹过都是这一生。

Inspirations from Scrum

The universe is complicated, nonlinear-causal, multidimensional, changing and adaptive. The only thing can contend against the “second law of thermodynamics” (chaos) is life. The living who survive and multiply are nothing but keeping evolving with feedback and adapting itself to environment, this is also named “empirical process”.

“Zen” highlights “put down differentiation” and “focused repeating” when do anything in order to master it. In western world that has another statement called “deliberating practice” or “10000 hours” but yet another version of the ancient eastern wisdoms. Scrum is also telling us to focus on complete short-term goal and keep replanning iteratively instead of pursuing just a long-term predefined plan with pain.

While we can not fully predict the side-effects when we do something. As long as we survive we continue to inspect and adapt, as described in book “Anti-fragile” the earlier failure comes the better. Agile / Scrum is about seek failure and feedback actively with courage and openness in shorter time-box to make things even stronger, just like living. Every time my scheduled trip encounter changes, I deeply experience the importance of “defer decision” and “the art of possible”. Always having possibilities is important for one to become a free man in this life.

At a time we can only put energy on one thing, “big and complex thing begins from small and simple”, said “Tao Te Ching” (Tai Ji). Scrum is a great practical framework to implement focus on one small thing and get it done ASAP with highest value within shortest time, so as not to fall into “Parkinson’s Law” (procrastination). Agile / Scrum presents similar effect to “The law of attraction”.

I started to study professional coaching since 2015 which is about helping people change and definitely requires respect and commitment. I didn’t realized coaching has something to do with IT or Scrum before. One day my teacher said in the class, “There’s no failure, there’s only not getting feedback”. Oh, that is the very core of Agile!

Aha, Agile intersects with so many well-known theories and technologies, those imply the values of Scrum, and I believe it is a representation of the essence of the world. I want to share such a good thing and benefit people to work and live in a proper way, be comfortable and be happier with confidence.

硬件产品增量分拆于规模化敏捷Scrum研发中

如何分拆硬件研发中的产品增量?

这个例子来自德国纽伦堡的某个硬件产品团队,他们在5年前开始导入LeSS(大规模敏捷)。

产品领域是电信硬件和软件,其中关键是cross connect board(某种PCB电路板),包含电源、FPGA–现场可编程门阵列(其中一些最终融入到ASIC–专用集成电路中)、设备驱动等。

一个架构要点是,容错是非常重要的;一块PCB电路板经常具备另一块“B计划即故障切换(failover)板子(想象该cross connect board”方案具有A板和B板),即使在单块板子上也会有容错处理(例如:从外接电源切换到电池)

敏捷Scrum中蕴含第一性原理来降维打击

最近敏捷小伙伴们在讨论Scrum与Kanban的区别,还有一些伙伴趁着清明节使劲地挖坟考古。我也来谈谈看法。本文无意考古和展开某种方法论,而是试图以“第一性原理”来探讨事情的本质。

第一性原理

A first principle is a basic, foundational proposition or assumption that cannot be deduced from any other proposition or assumption.

这是来自于量子力学计算的一种说法,意思是从头算,只采用最基本的事实,然后根据事实推论。

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.
