The amount of time employees spend engaged in collaborative work has increased roughly 50 percent and takes up 80 percent or more of their time. And today, we are on twice as many teams as we were five years ago. In innovation settings, this is even more so. But how are innovation teams usually created? Based on who is available? Functional expertise? Maybe with a nod to diversity? Suzan Briganti, Founder and CEO of Swarm Vision, shared how to design high performing innovation teams. What kind of diversity really matters? And how can you design stronger teams using the science of innovation talent?
