SKILL BUILDING: "Diversity Drives Innovation" with The Medici Group, Founded by Frans Johansson, MBA 2000

CANCELED.  Rescheduled date TBD.

In this session the participants go through a couple of exercises that highlights how and why diversity drives innovation. It is about finding new and innovative opportunities and ideas by leveraging different perspectives and making people bring their whole selves to work. We use any kind of diversity: Gender, age, ethnicity, function, education, interests etc. The participants will:

  • Look beyond their professional roles
  • Form effective work groups
  • Experience directly how their differences can be leveraged for innovation
  • Discuss the business case for diversity

The Medici Group helps clients learn how to innovate—and do this at full speed—by harnessing a secret weapon unique to only their organization: the diversity of their people. Our approach is based on the thought leadership of our founder and CEO Frans Johansson, whose ideas on innovation, leadership and success, and diversity and inclusion have inspired thousands worldwide. The Medici Group has combined Johansson's ideas from THE MEDICI EFFECT (HBS Press, 2004) and THE CLICK MOMENT (Penguin Portfolio, 2012) into a system that completely rewrites the rules for how individuals and teams interact, collaborate, and execute past failure and with minimal resources to drive innovation.
