Strategic Alignment

A grand, noble vision elevates the energy, enthusiasm and self-esteem of all team members and gets them focused on a common target.


A great innovation team is infused with a great passion about doing great new things together.

Entrepreneurial Attitude

For the members of a great innovation team, entrepreneurship is a way of both life and business. Their unending creative dissatisfaction with the status quo, fearless pursuit to push the limits of conventional wisdom into breakthrough directions, and willingness to treat mistakes arising from daring initiatives as investments lead them to great achievements.

Cross-functional Excellence

Team members possess complementary know-how, have a diversity of thinking and abilities, and are assigned with interconnected roles. They cross-pollinate their diverse knowledge and ideas to create systemic innovations and achieve holistic success.


The value created by a great innovation team is greater than the sum of individual contributions by its members. Cross-pollination of ideas, creative cooperation, synergized diversities, reflection on each others viewpoints, and relationships among team members are inspiring and empowering. The common larger purpose and the benefits of achieving it make team members see and appreciate the great value of a synergistic approach.


An innovation team stays committed to its vision, but is flexible in its approach.
