There are a lot of people who can paint but not many who can paint well. When trying to find the best painter, we need to look at two different criteria: performance metrics, and capability to see in to the future. Every expert has performance metrics to differentiate himself from others. The next criteria can be a little bit more confusing because you have to find a a way to measure some ones ability to see into the future. The easiest way to test someones capability is to ask simple questions. How do you know you can do the job? What are some of the major risks on the project? By utilizing and analyzing these two criteria, you can find yourself the best painter around.
