It’s conventional to admire the creator of novel work—the ground-breaking innovator.
In fact, much value is added in the interpretation of new ideas for familiar situations. And that’s an art too.
There’s considerable skill in sensing what a person or a group needs next—where they’re at—and delivering the right insight at the right time in the right place and in the right way—interpreting an original source and making it relevant to a person or a team or an organisation so that they act on the knowledge and achieve better results.
There can be a long chain from original research to practical application, and many important roles in between.
Perhaps you fulfil some of them…
Are you an interpreter?
