This year we will release the first of our 24-page Essential Education guides.
The guides will be published as e-books and, subsequently, as print-on-demand physical books.
Each topic is introduced within the context of Optimal Knowledge Working, and each guide answers three questions.
- WHY does the skill or strategy matter?
- WHAT are the skill or strategy’s essential principles and facts?
- HOW do you deliver value through the skill or strategy?
The first guide we will publish is Change Essentials, which will be released soon after the second edition of Clear Concise Compelling (around mid-May).
