Foundations course

“Building a Foundation for Principled Innovation” is a free, self-paced course that provides an introduction to the concept of PI and in particular, to the character assets that are at its core. It includes six modules and will take roughly 5 to 6 hours to complete in total. You can work on it over multiple sittings, spread out over days or weeks, depending on your needs, to give yourself time to absorb and process the content.
