Developing a Shared Value System

A shared value system strengthens cohesion and makes it easier for employees to prioritize their tasks, even under time pressure. While larger organizations usually formulate their core values consciously and explicitly set them down in guidelines, shared values in SMEs or at the team level often emerge more incidentally and largely unconsciously. Once the team culture has been formed in this way and established in everyday working life, it is difficult to change it unless the relevant personnel also change.

Therefore, it is worth thinking about values and developing a shared value system in the initial phase of an innovation project. In the discussion, team members get to know each other and deepen their understanding and acceptance of different backgrounds and views.
