The 21st century expert is proficient in the act of integrating relevant points of various subject matters into one grand picture. It also enabled him or her to capitalize on major opportunities while mitigating the risks.
Some of the current group of experts do not possess the insight, the foresight and the perseverance to be the ultra class expert. They usually talk a good game of "what the objective" should be about and what is the approach to solving it.
As a big picture thinker, these experts usually rely on their network to do the detail work. The results are usually just "good enough."
Following are the requirements of the expert:
- Having the skill to define the dots;
- Connecting them together on time, on budget and on target.
- Staying focused on the target while being mindful of the relevant external points that influenced the terrain of the target.
