"A creative organization is constantly on the lookout for people with capacity and – just as important – the disposition for collaboration across disciplines. In the end, this ability is what distinguishes the merely multidisciplinary team from a truly interdisciplinary one. In a multidiscipliary team each individual becomes an advocate for his or her own technical specialty and the project becomes a protracted negotiation among them, likely resulting in a gray compromise. In a interdisciplinary team there is collective ownership of ideas and everybody takes responsability for them. "
