Intellectual diversity is an element of creativity whereby societies, organizations, teams and processes that have diverse thinkers are more likely to generate diverse ideas. This can improve strategy, problem solving and design. Intellectual diversity occurs naturally within an environment that is open and free. The following are illustrative examples.
RecruitingRecruiting that is looking for interesting characters as opposed to "like-minded" candidates. For example, standardized testing of applicants may reduce intellectual diversity.
