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