Integration Competence Center
>>> How To Start
Agile Competence Center
Phase I
Form a team and sit together
Perform self-assessment of the organization's

Define goals
Commit
Take the responsibility
Hold each other accountable
Focus on results
Have fun !
Phase III
Put solution to work and retrieve feedback
Criticize ideas, not people
Fail Fast
Phase IV
Fix what is not working
Evolve the model
Operational efficiency *ZERO WASTE*
Continuous improvement
Define funding model to support competence center
Phase II
Protect the vision (Agile is there to stay!)
Define organizational learning practices
Enforce Agile practices on project/s
Infrastructure === Code
Define and deploy tools for specific technologies
>>> Competency Center Models
- Best Practices
Seeks to leverage knowledge by establishing and documenting effective integration processes.
- Standard Services
Focuses on processes, including standardizing and enforcing naming conventions, establishing
metadata standards, instituting change management procedures, and providing standards training.
- Shared Services
Optimizes use of resources by creating a shared environment for development, quality assurance and
production.
- Central Services
Provides enterprise wide control over integration activities by specifying best practices, setting
technology standards, and assuming responsibility for some or all aspects of every integration project
in organization.
- Self Service
Supports an environment which is sufficiently standardized and automated such that it becomes
almost invisible from perspective of the individual systems.

CodecenLrlc Serbla compeLence cenLer was esLabllshed by group of Aglle enLhuslasL ln order Lo creaLe compeLence model
whlch wlll glve posslblllLy Lo have same level of quallLy and commlLmenL from each developer ln Lhe company regardless of
Lhe pro[ecL on whlch he ls worklng.
Level I Software Craftsman
Software Craftsman must have skills necessary to work in cross functional team which is capable to turn the
agreed commitment into a valuable increment in each Sprint. He should be familiar with practices and tools
which enable this cross-functionality, not only related to coding, but also from architecture, testing,
requirements analysis and many other aspects which a team, and thus, its members, face during a project.
Level II Certified Developer
Although some people tend to argue against certification, there is still a lot of benefits for developer who is
experienced in some areas to study course material and fill the gaps in his knowledge. For developers who
are not so experienced, passing the certification will give solid foundation for dealing with daily challenges. By
having team of developers who are certified and proficient in software craftsmanship practices, company will
be able to mitigate risks of dealing with unmaintainable software with low code quality.
Level III Full Stack Developer
When company is large enough to have more projects which are including different technologies based on
one platform, it is expected that team members are experts in some areas. That will cause that they must
invest more time into solving technology/framework specific challenges in order to achieve high quality
standards. To reduce time necessary to learn new technology team members should get proper training. Full
stack developer is not only capable to finish his project, but he could also be valuable for the company by
being recognized as expert in specific area.
