Duplicating Expertise: Expert Modeling

Technological breakthroughs are rarely matched by increased human competence. Expert Modeling aligns human innovation with technological innovation to enhance competence and productivity.
Martyn Carruthers

Expert Modeling combines systemic coaching, accelerated learning, value theory, typological analysis, behavioral psychology and management science to duplicate excellence. Expert Modeling is used to decompose skills, create models and transfer competence, as part of management and organizational development packages.

A defining feature of expertise is unconscious competence - competence not requiring cognitive monitoring and interaction. Expert Modeling trains people to develop unconscious competence by duplicating the beliefs, values, attitudes, heuristics, mental processes and physical activities that characterize expertise.

Outer & inner modeling

Outer behavior (physiology and muscle movement) can be directly observed and copied. Modeling inner behavior requires intensive interviews. Inner behavior includes identity, values, beliefs, strategies, sensory acuity and metaprograms, which can be synthesized into models of competence.

Expert Modeling identifies, decodes and duplicates process competence, while most educators identify, decode and duplicate content competence. See university

Elements of Expertise

bullet Identity - perception of self, purpose, vision and sense of life
bullet Values - abstractions of importance - things people seek or avoid
bullet Beliefs - perceived rules of causality and appropriateness
bullet Strategies - sequences of actions and sensory experiences
bullet Sensory Acuity - ability to represent and discriminate sensory information
bullet Attention - moment by moment focus of subjective attention
bullet Metaprograms - patterns of thinking, behavior and attention
bullet Physiology - posture, pulse, muscle tone, blood pressure, balance etc
bullet Heuristics - strategies for solving new or unknown problems

Generative & Integrative Modeling

Actively elicit the elements of expertise until all relevant strategies of an expert are known. Once elicited, an expert model may be used without modification; or an expert model may be streamlined (generative modeling) or a group of expert strategies may be combined (integrative modeling).


Expert Modeling identifies, elicits and transfers key aspects of competence. It also enables the recognition and selection of people who can both develop the desired competence quickly, and retain expertise longer. Expert modelling can be integrated with systemic coaching.

Phase 1 of Expert Modeling decomposes expert performance into a knowledge base of behavioral micro-skills. Phase 2 sequences, optimizes and refines these skill components, so that they may be sequenced into testable models of competence. Phase 3 transfers the models of competency to learners using accelerated learning and behavior modification strategies that are integrated into systemic coaching.

Expert Modeling increases both individual productivity and team performance. It also improves employee selection, assists equipment design and reduces training duration.
