As their career progress, they become more expert in a few things,but less capable in dealing with or understanding things outside their domain of expertise. They becomecompetent at solving problems that are routine, but are less able to apply these problem solving skills inwider contexts.Creative problem solving is skill most needed for individual and business to survive and grow.
