List of Skills/Abilities/Competences Needed to Start a New Team

Everything on this page was identified by people who were working in new teams in urban areas in W Europe. As such, it is a pretty accurate list of what is really needed in starting a new urban team and not a selection of good ideas of what might be helpful. Each person who contributed to this list were answering the question, "What skills, abilities and competencies might be needed to start a new team in Europe?"
