Don't be afraid to speak out, but have your data to support your argument. Good problem solving skills will help but you don't have to be an expert in every area but get to the people who do know. Most people love to transfer their knowledge especially when the request for information is genuine. Your own interest level will determine the kind of response you get, you'll build your networks this way. Get your hands dirty, never think that some part of the job is below you, you'll get two invaluable things from this - knowledge, you'll learn things that others would overlook and you'll have a better understanding of processes and your products
