Over the years, we've talked quite a bit about how to become a craftsman, exploring deeply how to progress from Apprentice to Master. What is often missing is any detail beyond the general thoughts that this is a Good Idea. Steve will share an approach, based on his experience of many years and many development organizations, to learning and career development for your team. This approach goes beyond the general ideas around Craftsmanship, but provides actual concrete areas of development. Unlike a formalized "skills checklist" we will apply a pattern language to help identify a continuum of growth for anyone's long term development.
We will discuss building understanding and building skills in the following areas:
Professional Skills
Process and Technical Ecosystems
Learning Outcomes:
  • The primary learning outcome is a new "pattern language" to understand career and skill development for Craftsmen. Unlike a formalized "skills checklist" this is designed to help identify a continuum of growth for anyone's long term development.
