Summary This case describes the evolution between 1999 and 2005 of an unusual innovation team within the office of the chief information officer at oil and gas giant BP. This team helped business units conceive, develop and implement novel, value-added applications for emerging information technologies. The team leader, vice president and chief technology officer Phiroz Darukhanavala ('Daru'), eschewed a large group and venture budget in favour of a small, lean team intimately engaged with BP's business units. The case describes several mechanisms created by the CTO office during its early evolution
