On team selection
- Your teammates want to hire new members who are similar to themselves. This approach is tempting for compatibility reasons, but how will you ever achieve greater diversity in the team?

On team rewards
- The team is rewarded on the basis of achieving its own performance goals. Yet, you wonder if such rewards prevent the team from seeing the larger organizational picture.
