Transformative teams

Jonathan Ive, senior vice president of industrial design at Apple:

We have assembled a heavenly design team. By keeping the core team small and investing significantly in tools and process we can work with a level of collaboration that seems particularly rare. Our physical environment reflects and enables that collaborative approach. The large open studio and massive sound system support a number of communal design areas. We have little exclusively personal space. In fact, the memory of how we work will endure beyond the products of our work.

This quote has an egotistical feel, that aside however, wouldn’t it be neat if this was said about a hospital patient care team?
