Generalised Specialist

Specialist skills create problems for the getting things done, work often queues up for these rare skills.  Therefore we need to distribute these skills throughout the team.

But people can tend to specialise because they have a "bent" to some particular technology/technique.  Rather than taking this away from these people or forcing a skill on to others we want to have some capability available to maintain some throughput.
