Functional Experts

When someone spends years and years becoming the expert on a particular topic, it becomes part of who he or she is. Experts have the hands-on experience, confidence and authority to make instinctive, snap decisions under constrained timelines and intense pressure.  But experts need help, too. When undertaking organizational change or resource allocation decisions with longer-term implications, complementary analytic skills are necessary to help experts avoid cognitive biases, engage experts from other domains, and in some cases, “do the math” to explore many alternatives and their costs before identifying a preferred solution.  And what expert does not value a new tool that makes his/her task easier, faster, more effective?
