I really like Seth’s What are you good at? post which discusses the relative value of Domain and Process knowledge. Something us mid-life people mull over ( and over and over ) as youngsters always seem to have the edge on domain knowledge. Thanks Seth for giving us hope 😉
Seth’s Key Points
- Domain knowledge is important, but it’s (often) easily learnable.
- Process knowledge is insanely valuable, and hard to learn.
- Unfortunately, it (process) is usually overlooked by headhunters and HR folks, partly because it’s hard to accredit or check off in a database.
