Take a closer look to the Team Experts important role including responsibilities and key activities.
The Team Expert is a member of the Project Team and, thus, accountable for the results of a Business Design project. He / she contributes to the success of the project with his / her expertise in engineering, sales, marketing or finance, whilst running through the innovation process. It is essential that the Team Expert is trained in Business Design before he / she joins a project team.
As a Team Expert you are taking responsibility for your project tasks being a member to the team. That means you work very closely with your Team Manager for coordination of activities and the other team members to share results, manage dependencies and prepare for workshops. In particular that means:
Preparing and participating in workshops (incl. e.g. personal preparation, ensuring availability, coordinating with line organization tasks)
Working on own content-related tasks (e.g. field research, prototyping, business case modeling) between workshops
Contribute to high-performance team work and act as a role model for others
