Walk Before You Run

Mastering Agile Techniques Takes Time, So Avoid Perfectionism

Anyone new to agile goes through a very bumpy progression: Nobody is perfect on day one. Agile practitioners have developed a rather esoteric shorthand for this progression borrowed from the idea of shuhari in the Japanese martial art aikido: from shu (follow the rules explicitly) to ha (bend the rules by tailoring to context) to ri (transcend the rules by doing only what is necessary). I prefer a more familiar analogy: crawl, walk, run.
