Chapter 2.0

Tier 2.0—Do

Abstract

The second tier of Learn/Do/Teach is, unsurprisingly, actually doing things. From a career perspective, if you never do anything, you don’t have a career. In general, a defense cannot be tested until it meets an adversary, so you may wish to build adversary-style testing into your Do process. The tasks needed to reach a goal are separated into sprints, with each sprint taking a fraction of the total time spent reaching a goal. Between each sprint is a break to test, rest, and review the past sprint and to plan the next sprints.
