For someone with a PhD, what is important is situational intelligence and the ability to view things from different angles. When they are presented with any given topic, they must be able to draw correlations immediately with other subject areas. Those mental gymnastics give a broader perspective. The systemic approach involves viewing an enterprise as a whole and considering the subject from a wider angle. PhD holders have this thirst for knowledge and intellectual curiosity in their DNA.
