Time to praise the generalist

World of specialists

Deep domain knowledge is often appreciated and experts are easily labelled. That makes us feel comfortable. But does it help us solve the complex issues we face today, never mind tomorrow?  It’s time to see the value that the generalist can bring; puttting the right elements together, combining the content of several boxes.

Thats why great orchestra’s have a conductor, and why creating an exciting future for you and your company can’t be done by number crunching and analysis only.

The warning lights are on for those willing to see. Look for the generalists in your organisation, or invite some if you can’t find them, and work together to find some blue sky. It might not be comfortable at first, but will turn out much better that you imagined.  Give it a try!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both
    educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something regarding this.

    up here Time to praise the generalist | Visual Strategy’s Blog. And I actually do have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or does it appear like some of the responses come across like they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on
    everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

      Hi Elissa, many thanks for your compliment! There are indeed plenty of options out there. My advise would be to first get a clear picture of what you want to achieve and then look for the tools to help you get there. I decided to focus on the content and keep it simple. WordPress works well for me. Good luck, and have fun! Cheers!
