From the Paper:

"Many companies lack the time, the resources or simply the desire to build their teams any other way than the traditional models that a multitude of businesses practiced before them. Teams are comprised of individuals with impressive resumes or internal clout due to the amount of time the individual has worked for the company. While this has worked for some companies the traditional model of team building pays no mind to the particular dynamics of a team or any potential conflict that can arise within the team. The success is left to mere luck and today that is quite simply an unacceptable way of doing business."
