Why Teams with a Broad Skill Set Perform Better

F10 FinTech Incubator & Accelerator is looking for web designers, businesswomen, marketeers, bankers, software developers and lateral thinkers that want to reshape the finance industry together at the F10 FinTech Hackathon in Zurich. We highly recommend working in complementary and diverse teams with a broad skill set to create the next big thing.

The F10 FinTech Hackathon will take place in Zurich for the first time in March 2019! A distinguishing feature of the F10 FinTech Hackathons is that the participants are invited to solve real-life problems of the finance industry. Teams can pick one challenge and develop innovative solutions – or realize their own ideas.

We strongly recommend the participants to form complementary-skills teams to benefit as much as possible from each team member’s talents and abilities when solving the Hackathon challenges. The limitations of people’s information-processing capacity make it impossible for one individual to solve multi-faceted problems on their own. Bringing people with different know-how and abilities together does not only compensate for the shortcomings of each team member, but also leads to more objective decisions as people from different backgrounds often also have different styles and approaches to solving problems. The main ingredients to integrate these varieties of techniques, stances and methods into the team are mutual trust and respect. According to the Association for Project Management, “teamworking is most effective when people with complementary skills and behaviours are committed to a common objective and method of working”.
