Transferable Skills

Understanding the Scientific Enterprise as a Science Program Officer in a Nonprofit

How do you apply this transferable skill in your position?

My job is at a non-profit organization that funds people and projects in science. Many of the proposed ideas are about long-term issues that are part of the scientific enterprise. It is important to being aware about how science really is done (not just the public's perception of how science is done.) Example areas that require this knowledge include: promotion and tenure system's impact on collaborative science, barriers to data sharing, COVID-impact on job market, etc.
(Note: This question only allowed me to pick a single specific skill)


How else do you use this transferable skill?
understanding entire enterprise -- how science is funded, how it is carried out, how it is published, how data is shared, etc.
