My comment:

At, thank you for the invitation. This is my feeling as well. Yet another
mangement book with rebundled old news... The speed (rate) is "fluency" in
Precision Teaching (PT.) The number of trials to get to fluency is what is
called "celeration" in PT. I.e. the rate of change in fluency over time.
It has been around for several decades, also in corporate training and
performance improvement.
