Our Philosophy

ShuHaRi is a learning approach based on a Japanese martial art concept which describes the stages of learning to mastery.

Shu: Know The Rules

Shu describes the individual who is just beginning their Agile transformation. At this stage, a learner must obey the teachings of his master. The focus is on doing the task, not on understanding the theory behind it.  The student must execute the task in one way, and one way only, before advancing to the next stage of learning.

Ha: Bend The Rules

During Ha, the student begins to understand the underlying principles behind what they are doing. The teachings of other masters are integrated into an evolving work practice. The solid foundation of Shu has proven stable enough to handle some change.

Ri: Make The Rules

Having earned the way to Ri , learning is now happening as a result of engaging in one’s own work or project, rather than as simply trying to become a disciple of someone else’s teachings.
