Vikram Mansharamani, whose name you may find familiar from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, the Atlantic, and elsewhere, has an interesting piece about Generalists (see All Hail the Generalist, on the HBR Blog network). As one occasionally accused of being a generalist myself (my being a coder and product guy notwithstanding), it was gratifying to read that someone else thinks the specialist era may be drawing to a close, and that generalists seem so much better positioned to make the leaps of intuition and creativity required for 21st century, Internet-driven businesses. Enjoy the post, it’s a good one. Hat tip to Arun Kumar, also a self-described generalist, for the post graphic (slightly modified form is my fault!).
