For instance, when discussing a problem with experts in the workplace, we make judgments about the knowledge that is being provided and the credibility of its source. From these encounters, we might appreciate further the qualities of the expert. Alternatively, we might decide that the expert is particularly knowledgeable about certain matters, but not others. When we try to apply the advice, we make further judgments about the quality of the information. Accordingly, how we view the expert is transformed: their standing might be enhanced or diminished, or it might be refined further.

However, some work tasks will be too novel or difficult to be resolved satisfactorily. For example, if you do not understand the principles of a new piece of equipment or are faced with a work problem that is totally different from anything you have experienced before, it would be unreasonable to expect task resolution.

Imagine how difficult it would be to walk if every movement of the legs and their coordination had to be consciously thought about. Instead, after practice, these routine tasks become procedures we can use whilst undertaking other tasks.
