diverse groups of problem solvers

“Diverse groups of problem solvers — groups of people with diverse tools — consistently outperformed groups of the best and the brightest. If I formed two groups, one random (and therefore diverse) and one consisting of the best individual performers, the first group almost always did better. In my model, diversity trumped ability.” — Scott E. Page
