Can Subject Matter Experts Transition To Executive Roles?

There are many benefits that come with being a Subject Matter Expert (SME). If you’re a SME, people depend on you for not just your knowledge of a particular area or topic, but your ability to come up with solutions to current problems and potentially stop new ones. Sounds like a great field to be in, and one where you can be valued, but if you aren’t careful, you could jeopardize losing out on other positions that are outside your expertise.
