How to use this page

The content for Q self-service training course is split into 3 sequences representing 3 case studies:

  • Cola – critical content that is the bare minimum knowledge to operate Q.
  • Supermarket – a recommended minimum for a person to get a handle on Q.
  • Burger – recommended so users get a more comprehensive foundation in using Q.

    Our recommendation is that all users work through all 3 cases studies in order.
