Teams with healthy idea life cycles are easy to spot by michael edson Teams with healthy idea life cycles are easy to spot: ideas flowbetween people easily and in large volumes. Conversations arevibrant with questions and suggestions; prototypes and demoshappen regularly; and people commit to finding and fighting forgood ideas. Often, this is fun—people are happy to learn fromfailures, debates, and bizarre ideas. Teams that innovate are greatplaces for ideas to live; like happy pets, they’re treated well, getlots of attention, and are shared among people who care deeplyabout them.The life of ideas is the responsibility of whoever is in charge. — From Scott Berkun’s The Myths of Innovation, page 103.
