GE: Mission-Based Teams (DNA of Engagement: Highly Engaged Teams—Implications for Asia)

“Oftentimes, we form a mission-based team to work out things that we don’t know how to tackle yet; it may be in new areas where we want people to be creative, innovative, to really think out of the box to resolve the tough challenge. And the diversity in mission-based team comes out automatically if we build the team correctly.” -- Heather Wang, Vice President, Human Resources, Global Growth Organization and Global Talent Acquisition

Learn how GE leverages the benefits of agile teams, how it overcame Asian cultural barriers in assembling agile teams, and how a transparent culture and open communication enable trust among team members at all levels.
