Abstract

While technology and market traction are essential to any successful biotechnology organization, the importance of the team cannot be overemphasized. Without an effective team, most companies will not achieve their potential, or will fail. The entrepreneurial leadership team needs to have an understanding that building and sustaining an entrepreneurial culture is what differentiates and sustains successful organizations. The leadership must also be sure to recognize and reward team (and partner) contributions to company value creation, and to incorporate mechanisms and processes to encourage employees to "own" and identify with their organization. Employee ownership includes both equity participation and psychological ownership and identification with the enterprise. Emerging collaborative-networked partnerships in the biopharmaceutical industry incorporate teams that must be constructed and managed to perform effectively across the entire biotechnology value chain including geographically dispersed team members and partners. These new organizations are presented with challenges regarding team development, management, and performance. This chapter covers the topic of building and growing collaborative, interdisciplinary teams that identify and commercialize promising biotechnology innovations, and grow successful companies.
