Since the GCC focuses on learnable principles, it's easy to apply the information we provide to a variety of subjects, projects, and situations. We've listed handouts of our learnable principles organized by common projects and subject matter. Each category begins with the basics (organization and structure) and moves to principles that are specific to the type of project you're working on.
