    ‘In this case, having one “star player” who’s an expert in optimization simply isn’t enough.’
    True! It needs to be a badge each member of the team wears by choice. And the usual excuses – lack of learning, ignoring synergy, accepting (or aiming for) mediocrity – need to be scoffed and scorned at. Silostriches (silo ostriches, those who hide their head in their own sand, as an operational tactic), need demotion. Outside of the team, be uber competitive – which requires everyone inside the team to be uber role centric, yet cogtastic (realize one cog cannot produce fantastic results). Put up posters showing Dan Marino, and his Superbowl ring count.
