Similar to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (the Theory of Human Motivation), the Pyramid / Hierarchy of Skills is suggested. It includes 5 levels: Know, Play, Work, Solve, and Invent. Another classification includes roles: Student, Apprentice, Specialist, Expert, and Craftsman.
Hierarchy of competence is analysed for Unconscious / Conscious Competence / Incompetence.
"The craftsman represents the special human condition of being engaged." - Richard Sennett
The work is inspired by two books:
- Maslow A.H. A Theory of Human Motivation
- Sennett R. The Craftsman. 2008.
