Michael Flanakin's blog Food for thought...

I read an article, Let Innovation Thrive, which lists 5 important characteristics of someone working on an innovation team. My first thought after reading the list was, “Forget innovation, this is life in IT.”

  1. Consciousness:
    Each person knows the goals of the organization and believes they can play a part in achieving them.
  2. Multiplicity:
    Teams and groups contain a wide and creative mix of skills, experiences, backgrounds, and ideas.
  3. Connectivity:
    Relationships are strong and trusting, and are actively encouraged and supported within and across teams and functions.
  4. Accessibility:
    Doors and minds are open; everyone in the organization has access to resources, time, and decision makers.
    Each person knows the goals of the organization and believes they can play a part in achieving them.
  5. Consistency:
    Commitment to innovation runs right through the organization and is built into processes and leadership style.
