Synonyms, Variations & Acronyms:
1. Source, is used to include the Idea that ‘it does not matter if the expertise comes from a person, a group, or a written source such as a book, a paper, presentation, video, or internet’.
2. State of the art: is the border between what we in a given domain, have actually achieved in reality, and beyond that border, where ‘no man has gone Before us’. We ‘know we don’t know’ how to go beyond that border. So the expert knows what is ‘possible, for sure’; and which might therefore be ‘impossible for now’, costly, risky, or challenging.
3. Knowing ‘how to make it happen’, Means the source knows the necessary Architecture, design, Strategy, or Means to achieve the state-of-the-art levels in practice. We argue that merely knowing the existing ‘records’ is one simple Level of expertise. But is almost without real value if we cannot know how they were achieved in practice. Because we will have difficulty replicating or beating the feat.
4. There is an implication that the ‘source’ also has knowledge of the Cost aspects for example (capital, operational, time) of the Means to achieve the state-of-the-art levels, and probably also knowledge about cheaper options at lower levels of performance.
