We have adopted a Shuhari strategy for this certification program. Shuhari is a martial arts concept that represents the stages of someone's learning:
Shu (Learn). At the shu stage you are beginning to learn the techniques and philosophies of disciplined agile development. Your goal is to build a strong foundation from which to build upon. This beginner stage of learning is represented by the Disciplined Agilist designation and Certified Disciplined Agilist certification.
