For FTC & FRC: Teams want to form alliances with teams that are really good at some things and not mediocre in all things...
Start as individuals then move to group
Focus on quantity NOT quality - Bad ideas inspire good ideas
Merge & prioritize
Combine robot qualities & robot functionality
Quickest ways to get points
Cool factor – not in build cool robot contest
Visualize Einstein - what would the smartest person/best team do?
