When you take a step backwards.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This post is the twentieth in a series of posts about a reflection on our ability to socially evolve. These posts should be read in the order of their publication. For example, starting with the 6th would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
This is how, in this beautiful “extrospective”, I realized the importance of experts. Rare, precious and valued by the group. Although we often denigrate them by wishing to ignore our dependence on them, they are essential for preserving our achievements.
In my last role, I was an expert myself. Called upon to contribute in all aspects, we were desperately lacking my fellow peers. Just imagine a professional sports team with an unreasonably large number of support staff, but a ridiculously low number of players on the pitch. The support staff share the meager contributions, but they cannot jump onto the pitch until they have acquired the skills required to meet the expectations of the crowd of spectators.
The reality is that a scarcity of essential resources will result in their overexploitation, while secondary resources will be poorly exploited. The balance is fragile in a context of more complex work because the smaller the group, the greater the risk of imbalance. Is this a recommendation or simply an observation? How could we see if humanity as a whole is evolving? Is the increase in numbers not simply a response to the increase in complexity?
To be continued…
