Another reason for learning those research skills
Morgan Wilson, in his blog explodedlibrary, gives a short post on why it is important to learn research skills. While he gives four reasons, the one he expands is bullshit detection. Just because you may be a decision maker, it does not mean you can just let your information underling do the research work. You still have to be able to select and filter information in order to make a decision. He explains it much better here, so take a look. Instruction librarians may want to mention this when if a student asks, "why am I learning this?"
