The Three Aspects of Engineering
Perhaps this is the three aspects of the economy, or business in general. It has simply dawned on me lately that there is more to the business than the factory or the design that people talk about. It takes a massive effort to get something from an idea to sold.
I tried to give examples of just about everything, except for T shaped people. As we get into more and more complex designs the need for T shaped people rises. For example, no longer will one person in his garage build something that takes the world by storm, it will nearly always be a group of talented people working together. The point being, each of us gets so bogged down in what we do be it the office or the factory and we forget about other aspects that are all needed to successfully design, build, market and sell a product.
