Generalists vs specialists

  • Generalists are more able to come up with new ideas and identify opportunities in fields with a slower pace of change, such as oil, gas, and mining.
  • Specialists are better in fields with a faster pace of change, such as quantum computers and gene editing. They can more easily make sense of new technical developments and opportunities.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
