Depending on the project it is between a highly creative and a highly knowledge based process, the only other job similar in my opinion is the movie business, where you need creativity in writing the script, lighting, camera work etc. to hauling equipment around, accounting, scheduling, catering etc.

Some jobs are just like "American pie [insert number]" and some are like "Eyes wide shut".
