Part I: The Structure

Approach 1: The Die Hard Model

Approach 1: Fix this.

Approach 1: The Die Hard ModelSink or swim.Characterized by diving straight into problems or broken thingsMost often the first approach

Approach 1: The Die Hard ModelPros:Needs little prep timeVery hands on, kinestheticHigh returns of experiential knowledgeCons:Pairing-heavyMonolithic in natureTakes a while to understand the full contextProvides slowest learning speed

Approach 2: The Karate Kid Model

Approach 2: One thing at a time.

Approach 2: The Karate Kid ModelLets learn the fundamentals first.Learning in modulesOvercorrection after trying the first approach

Approach 2: The Karate Kid ModelPros:RepeatableCan be assigned to schedulesCan structure so its self-drivenCons:Low on experiential knowledgeTakes time to prepareProvides longest time to overall context

Approach 3: The Rocky Balboa Model

Approach 3: The Rocky Balboa Model

Approach 3: The Rocky Balboa ModelThis is what were going to build. This is the knowledge youll need.Modularized, while maintaining overall contextAnchored by an end-goal, or artifact

Approach 3: The Rocky Balboa ModelPros:Best of both worlds (repeatability, experiential knowledge)Provides the fastest understanding of how things tie togetherStructured, but modularized enough that its flexible

Cons:Takes the longest time to prepare
