    Hi Gia Bui, thank you for the very interesting & useful question for all of us. 

    The terms specialist & generalist are often used to indicate how "deep" or "wide" is the level of one's expertise. Few people have the ability to go both deep & wide at the same time. 

    In medicine, generalist doctors (those you find at the phong kham)  have a good understanding of all common sicknesses but will need to refer you to a specialist if there is a more serious sickness. 

    In HR, generalists are those who have an understanding of the common HR functions like payroll, compensation & benefits, HR laws & training. These people can be good connectors between HR & other departments. A HR specialist is one who has chosen a specific area, example learning & development, & focused on being an expert in that area. 

    Interestingly, even in the animal kingdom, there are generalists & specialists. See this article. The generalist species can adapt to environments & diets more easily than specialist species. 

    That said, being generalist or specialist is not better or worst in Vietnam or anywhere in the world. It depends on your strengths, passion & the path you believe is how you can contribute best. 

    So it comes down to you understanding yourself & to discover what is the best way you can contribute. That will ensure your success in whatever field you are in. 

    One last thought about being a manager. Should a manager be a specialist or generalist? A manager should definitely learn to be a specialist in managing. A manager who manages poorly is not very useful to anyone. In terms of knowledge, the manager can still be a specialist in a particular area but would definitely benefit greatly by being a generalist of all the responsibilities of his/her team. 

    Hope this helps. Enjoy yourself as you figure this out for your leadership journey. 

    Warmly,
    Paul

     specialist is a profesionals in which they work or care best.

    maybe say that they are the technician who know clearly about the jobs they work.

    they kmow structure, detail, way of setting up, or products, customers, market, main care, exactly requirement...

    But manager with the role is manage follow the leader, and the direction that cleared before.

    they have to understand structure, human in internal, relationship and supervisor in many case.

    So a good manager is a person who know exactly what does specialist want and help them get it throught support, encourangement,...

    and a success organization is in which they have the good manager who  understand human and way of managing in internal, ability in external communication and have a group of very good specialists.

    There is no major difference in both because they are experts in their fields and works. I am searching on consumeratings.com for a new generalist to work on web development. And if there is any specialist of this technique so he also contacts us.
