When consultants praise the merits of diversity in business leadership, are they actually trying to boost your bottom line or are they simply being politically correct? The Boston Consulting Group asked employees from 1,700 companies worldwide about diversity in their companies and then measured the data against revenue garnered from new products. The results should inform executives and hiring managers as they strive to assemble innovative teams.
In this summary, you will learn
- What to look for when assembling an innovation dream team,
- How a company’s culture can facilitate the benefits of diversity and
- Why companies must approach diversity objectives just like they would any other business goal.
