I ran across this article while conducting research on building great creative team structures. For many of us in the world of design, this problem may hit close to home.

Ajay Shrivastava does a great job outlining the issues of these disjointed teams as well as the benefits of collaborative team model that he calls "Solver Teams" where team members are united by common goal or problem to be solved.
