A substantive theory was generated utilising an orchestral metaphor to explain the skills-acquisitive/exercise process. Findings revealed a three stage skills-acquisitive process: non-expert, experienced non-expert and expert. Each stage was typified by four characteristics that altered during the acquisitive process: knowledge, experience, skills and focus. The findings also identified features of the skill-acquisitive/exercise process either not reported or left implicit in previous studies, including the centrality of recognition of expertise; blurring the boundaries to expert practice; and the role of motivation, enjoyment and commitment to the acquisition of / Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
