Cross-Functional Teams

In strategic innovation road-mapping, the starting point for knowledge building and learning about the innovation concept is to establish a shared view of trends, disruptive technologies and other discontinuities, and related events that could shape the future.

To move efforts forward, cross-functional teams, either formal or informal, need to be formed, and intellectual teamwork need to be enabled and streamlined.

For incremental innovation product or service development projects, a cross-functional team  typically includes a technical guru, engineer, designer, manufacturing expert, supply chain specialist, and marketing specialist.

Your major suppliers and customers need also to be kept well informed of your new product/service development plans and allowed to work together to build these new solutions.
