A Master
Generalist

A master generalist, versatilist, or T-shaped person has skills and knowledge that are both deep and broad. They can apply a depth of skill to a progressively widening scope of situations and experiences, equally at ease with technical issues as with business strategy.

The need for T-shaped skills surfaces anywhere that innovation or problem solving is required across different deep functional knowledge bases or at the juncture of deep knowledge with an application area.
