The individual and psychological dimension has the components of general knowledge, communication knowledge, specialized knowledge, tacit knowledge, managerial knowledge and personality. The professional dimension includes the components of professional attitude, professional motivation, human skills, technical skills, perceptual skills and decision making skills.
