The Three Laws of Experts: A Lesson in Business Physics

A guest post from Richard Hammer:

Newton's CradleLaw One

All experts will religiously maintain their current opinions unless acted upon by funding raised (or grants) OR a new source of wisdom. 

Law Two

The rate of change in an expert’s opinion is directly proportional to the amount of funding raised (or grants) AND the sharing of new sources of wisdom.

Law Three

For every expert opinion, there is an equal and opposite expert opinion.

    Thank you for the kind words and the opportunity to spread the love! The January RBTC presentation on finding and securing that perfect resource (the Unicorn) was a lot of fun to prepare and present. It was great to see you there also!
