I spoke to an IT Supervisor final week who had been in administration roles for the final 25 years or so. I used to be probing him as to how he superior by way of his profession (he’s now the IT Supervisor of a producing enterprise).

His story was a typical one… he was head hunted into IT administration roles due to his specialist data in ERP methods which he picked up from the ERP consulting position he did earlier than his administration roles. Now substitute ‘ERP methods’ for any specialist Technology and I believe you’ll see the purpose.
