As I’ve mentioned above, this book provides you with a large number of

illustrative examples, worked examples, and exercises, using which you can

acquire the various techniques. I wondered whether to base the whole account

round a single case, whereby all of the examples would illustrate and develop

one particular individual’s material on a given topic in a consistent way.

I imagine this would have made for a coherent learning experience! I decided

against it, though, for two related reasons.

Grids can be used for an enormous variety of purposes, and can deal with any

topic under the sun. I wanted to give you a flavour of that richness, by using a

variety of examples. Secondly, as you’ll see over the page, grids can be used by

a great variety of people – undergraduates, teachers, business managers,

researchers, and any and all occupational specialists – and it would probably

have narrowed interest for the remainder if I’d provided examples pertinent to

just one of these groups. If at any point you find that the examples aren’t you,

then read on. You’ll come across something personally relevant shortly after,

I’m sure.
