This is a book of problem solving and resolution. This volume contends that the linkage between Master Craftsmanship, Core Curricula and Multiskilling phenomena is incredibly strong. Although the research in this volume is focused on health technology's learners, the work itself is applicable in most other venues including education, business, and industry. The work is unique in that it focuses on learner performance, and under what circumstances academically do they perform well. I presents a new paradigm: the Paradigm of Timeliness for improving the appropriate education at the right place and time to improve outcome.
