Balancing Mandates: Dealing with the Tensions Between Operational Mandates (Stability, Reliability) and Innovation Mandates (Change, Differentiation). [Some team members may have both mandates!] 4. Pride Investment Portfolio: Sharing a Focus on the Team and the Result [Introduced in this Presentation: http://bit.ly/prideip ] 5. Real Elements of Innovator Compensation: Scope of Innovation’s Impact may trump Salary. 6. When Neither “Generalist” nor “Specialist” Fits: The Top Innovator’s Expertise at being an Expert.
