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?
