There are five steps to new software mastery. This is from an article, “The Development Pipeline: How people really learn” by Mary Dee Hicks PhD and David B. Peterson PhD, © Melcrum Publishing Ltd., 1999 (now CEB Global). The steps in the pipeline are:

  1. Insight – you understood that you needed this product
  2. Motivation – knowing that using the product will impact your career positively
  3. Knowledge – It’s essential that you avail yourself of the training videos on this website and read the documentation.
  4. Real-World Practice – Present reports and send notifications (Advanced Version only) to a “safe” audience at first.  Then expand to your subcontractors and clients.
  5. Accountability – Review and add activities to Program Leader at least three times a week.  You must get into the habit of using it to enjoy its value.
