Beautiful Diversity is a series of management reports issued from our global think l@b. Based on thoughts and analyses shared by innovation experts, it intends to provide managers and professionals with actionable tools to generate innovative products and plans based on their personal and team diversity.
Diversity is a key element in defining individual value within complex systems affecting and interconnecting a growing variety of ideas and issues. By developing diversity as an innovation practice, project owners, team leaders and stakeholders are able to find the exact skills they need to deliver personal and unique value. In our management report “Diversity as a success story“, we detail the components of inner and outer diversity which can be used to define team, projects and individual diversity profile as a holistic way to scope the combined business and human value of an initiative.
By outlining key attitudes and requirements to become diversity champions, "Diversity as a success story" enables innovation practitioners, leaders and learners to understand the critical value of inner and outer diversity as a way to learn, share, develop and celebrate differences to deliver human value through innovation.
