Nice overview. Do you think there might be situations in which people skip a level? Like being able to tie business outcomes without being able to bet.

(1) sometimes you have a short stop to master a level

(2) sometimes you get an opportunity to show aptitude for multiple levels at the same time

(3) sometimes you show competency at the next level through shortcuts or storytelling…but eventually not having truly mastered a foundational skill comes back to bite you if you can’t coach others or connect the dots

tl;dr yes, but it doesn’t scale
