The First Online Course On… The Process

The First Online Course On… The Process

With the NBA Lottery tonight and the Sixers holding a 1% chance of landing the #1 pick thanks to Sam Hinkie, there’s no better time to look back and learn about the Process, one of the most controversial and successful front office gambits in the League’s history.

And there’s no better way to learn about the process than to read, watch, and listen to the definitive articles, videos and podcasts of the Process. We’ll take you through a 8-lesson course (we had to round up from 7.6), quizzes and all, and by the end, you’ll know more about The Process than Bryan Colangelo (if you don’t know who that is, all the more reason to continue!).

This course will take 4–5 hours, which is much, much shorter than the Process itself.

And remember, when things get tough, Trust the Process.

OK, that’s it. You’re now one of the only people in the world who can claim that you have an online degree in The Process. Put it on your LinkedIn, tweet about it, call your parents. You were the first. And if you’re not first… you might as well be last.

If you’ve completed this course, tweet me @packym with screenshots and I’ll send you a personalized Process Diploma.
