This title describes how businesses and other organizations can improve their performance by tapping the power of differences in how people think. What if workforce diversity, beyond being the right thing to do, can also improve the bottom line? This book shows how and why it can. The author, a leading thinker, writer, and speaker, makes a clear and compelling case for diversity and inclusion. He presents overwhelming evidence that teams that include different kinds of thinkers outperform homogenous groups on complex tasks, producing what he calls
diversity bonuses which include improved problem solving, increased innovation, and more accurate predictions-all of which lead to better results. Drawing on research in economics, psychology, computer science, and many other fields, he also tells the stories of businesses and organizations that have tapped the power of diversity to solve complex problems. The result changes the way we think about diversity at work-and far beyond.
