Abstract In many professions, the right balance between generalist and specialist skills is difficult to find. In UCD, we need to distinguish between method specialization and domain specialization, both of which have their own sets of pros and cons. Many internal UCD staff tend to be de facto domain specialists, simply because they naturally focus on the business domain of their employer. In this column, Peter Jones argues the case for an increased emphasis on domain specialization for external consultants as well. Any generalists out there want to take the other side?---David Siegel and Susan Dray
