What does a Technical Expert do?

Technical experts provide advice, recommendations, and guidance for technical matters in their area of expertise. They help guide strategic planning and the development of major initiatives. In many organizations, they serve in an advisory capacity but have no official decision-making authority. They often serve as an internal subject matter expert, enlisted to provide input and expertise for critical projects and initiatives. They may write training guides, white papers, research summaries, or other written materials. They may also perform verification or fact-checking as a technical reviewer for content written by other staff members.

Technical experts frequently have an advanced degree in their field of expertise, although significant professional experience is sometimes also acceptable. They must be able to explain complex, sophisticated concepts in simple terms. These roles often require the ability to interact with stakeholders at all levels across the organization.
