TEAM WORK
  • The requirement is for creative, knowledgeable
    individuals who can work collaboratively with
    like- minded colleagues. No one person has the
    knowledge, skills, and experience to do it alone.
    This requires the sublimation of individualism,
    the ability to achieve in a group setting, the
    willingness to negotiate compromises, the
    continuous search for improvement, all dependent
    on the ability of individuals to work free of
    immediate career concerns. Robert J. Parden,
    PICMET 1997
