What does it mean to be an expert?
Blog: Decision Management Community
An IT expert Bozhidar Bozhanov makes interesting points about being an expert: “First, make sure you know what you don’t know, so that you can explore it if needed. Second, we need to value expertise with its imperfections. There is no absolute expert in anything, there are only relative experts.” Link
He writes: “Imagine that after we recover from the COVID-19 crisis, there’s a cyber crisis. Who will be the IT experts to advise governments on the measures to be taken? University professors? Senior silicon valley technical people? Who will be on TV to discuss the cyber crisis in the role of “expert” – a senior engineer at a big bank, a junior developer, or someone that took CS 101 in university and happens to know the host? Who will drive the agenda and public opinion?“
