[Killietalk] OTF Re: BOT nominations HELP WANTED
"Dream teams thrive on mix of old and new blood
When the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series title since 1918 last
year, the team had some new blood, including key players Curt Schilling,
Orlando Cabrera and Doug Mientkiewicz, to mix with the old and help the team
achieve the pinnacle of baseball success.
In a paper published April 29 in the journal Science, Northwestern University
researchers turned to a different type of team -- creative teams in the arts
and sciences -- to determine a team's recipe for success. They discovered that
the composition of a great team is the same whether you are working on Broadway
or in economics.
The researchers studied data on Broadway musicals since 1877 as well as
thousands of journal publications in four fields of science and found that
successful teams had a diverse membership -- not of race and gender but of old
blood and new. New team members clearly added creative spark and critical links
to the experience of the entire industry. Unsuccessful teams were isolated from
each other whereas the members of successful teams were interconnected, much
like the Kevin Bacon game, across a giant cluster of artists or scientists."
