UTILIZING THE SU-HA-RI: Assessing Agile Teams and Showing Up in Each Stage as a Scrum Master With Pabitra Khanal

In this episode of The Agile Coach, Pabitra talks about assessing Agile teams in the sense of a Japanese martial arts concept which is the Su Ha Ri. She dives deep into each of the three stages, how scrum masters can work most effectively in each stage, and how you can also assess yourself and identify which stage you're in.



AGILE HIGHLIGHTS

Exploring the stages of Su Ha Ri
Su is the beginning stage where the student follows one master
Ha is where the student begins to branch out
Ri is the stage where students learn from their own practice
How the scrum master can show up in each of these stages
Assessing yourself through the Su-Ha-Ri



AGILE MOMENTS

Pabitra - When the team reaches the Ri stage:

“This is a beautiful stage to be in and for a coach to see the team get to this stage is amazing to witness. If these are true and your team is at a Ri stage, you really need to let them go in a way.”

Pabitra - Seeing the team become a high-performing team:

“There are always different approaches to get the same results. So at this stage, the team can come up with their own solutions, they just need a coach to help them find different ways to achieve what they need.”

Pabitra - Moving between the three stages as a scrum master:

“Am I showing up as a teacher? A coach? An advisor? And that is what a true coach does is consistently evaluating and uncovering better ways of helping the team at the end of the day.
