In most textbooks and classrooms, not only are these three fields of study separated, but they are further compartmentalized into separate subfields, obscuring the close interconnections between them. … Read more…

Re: revised development model

2009-08-04 Richard Moore Bcc: contributors ___ Greetings, I’ve gotten a lot of responses on the development model, but so far no one has actually given substantive feedback.

But if anyone does find the time, it would be appreciated.  Ironically, the details of the coupons aren’t really the central part of the model. What I really need feedback on are the nine development stages. Each of the stages has a particular goal, and as each is achieved, the next stage becomes possible. That’s the theory. But I need a reality check from others. It’s so easy to fool oneself with ones own design.
