Program Summary: A Subject Matter Expert (SME) is someone who has a deep understanding of a function, process, technology, machine, material, or equipment. Truth be told, not all SMEs are the same in terms of delivering value. For instance, in the world of learning anddevelopment (L&D), a successful SME is someone who can contribute as a key member of an L&D team, and is comfortable working in a group or team environment. An SME is someone
who communicates his knowledge of a topic to other professionals within an organization or institution. They often act as consultants to bodies that need to produce educational courses orpublish training material.
