In this episode, I talk to about the difference between big picture thinking versus a detailed orientated mindset and how to benefit from both in your engineering career. I will detail the benefits of each of these thinking patterns and provide strategies for utilizing both effectively as a technical professional.
Here are some of the key points discussed in this episode:
- As an engineering professional, you’ll be faced with a wide variety of problems and challenges that will require you to think big and come up with solutions.
- Engineers who value both big picture and detail-oriented thinking will have a greater opportunity to be successful in their careers.
- Big picture thinking is when you look at the whole picture and all of the effects that the situation has on everything around it. Most big-picture thinkers do not get bogged down in the details of executing their plans.
