An organization’s goal is not to provide a learning platform for people.

An organization’s goal is not to plan for people’s careers and aspirations. Or to cater to their ambition.

An organization’s job is not to give people all-rounded experience.


An organization’s job is to constantly manage risk.

And it manages risk by placing the best and most relevant individuals in the right roles.

It manages risk by bringing in experts that don’t always reinvent the wheel.

It manages risk by diversifying itself (not its people).

So if your organization wants you to become an expert in something, this is the context. It’s just doing its job!
