■ My start
In August 2010, I heard the Scrum training from Vernon Stinebaker in company (NEUSOFT). With strong interest and recognition, we tried Scrum in an internal project (a development on several dozen of the documents) immediately. Although this is not a real software development project, but let me start understanding the "new roles and relations "," new process ","Rhythm", etc. of Scrum.
- After that, as a Process Consultant, I started working on agile study, practice and promotion throughout my company (over 15,000 developers).

Shanghai Baosight Software Co., Ltd., EPG Leader
March 2007 - February 2010, Shanghai, Shanghai, China
When I was in Baosight, my main responsibility is leading my department to challenge CMMI-level 5 assessment.At that time, I saw the other departments using some methods of the Scrum.That is my first time to know Scrum.
The team applied the Scrum and Continuous Integration. At that time, I just thought agile is something new and fresh, but did not see what inner mechanism and benefits.
There is not my own practice.
