Each TPR has exactly one Team Leader.
Any Solver in good standing can form a TPR and is automatically designated as the Team Leader. The Team Leader invites members to join the TPR (subject to the controls described below).
The role of the Team Leader is central to ensuring that the team produces an agreed solution whose IP can be transferred. The decision rights of the Team Leader are balanced by the rights of each member to express their view on the solution – and even to disagree with it.
