• Committed to the corporation

• Seek to achieve the objective

• Are willing to take risks

• Seek what is possible

• Think in terms of short time spans

• Manage people

Project Champions

• Prefer working individually

• Committed to technology

• Committed to the profession

• Seek to exceed the objective

• Are unwilling to take risks; try to test everything

• Seek perfection

• Think in terms of long time spans
