The high level of expertise that often prevails in companies or development teams can sometimes result in “tunnel vision” that leads to more prominent and straightforward solutions being neglected. Processes that strengthen employee participation in developments and decisions can promote innovation “from below” and enrich and complement the work of development teams.
The diversity of employees in different departments and roles represents an immeasurable creative pool and prevents unproductive “groupthink”. Involving the entire workforce in brainstorming and implementing development projects fosters cohesion, increases employee engagement, and reinforces their perception of doing something meaningful.
