Diverse teams hold great potential for companies in terms of knowledge and skills. The composition of innovative planning, development or implementation teams ideally reflects the diversity of the targeted user group for whom products and services are developed or offered. Well-functioning innovation teams appreciate and support interaction with each other and perceive different views and approaches as an enrichment. However, this form of collaboration is often not a given but must be built up.

In this context, open and appreciative communication is essential from the very beginning – even in differing views. Here you will find some approaches that help heterogeneous teams to develop in the field of innovation.
