Building an innovation mindset within a team is similar to building a muscle; it needs practice and more practice. "Visual diversity" is no longer enough, "cognitive diversity" is the game-changer for high performing organizations.

Too often, we treat innovation as a monolith, as if every problem was the same, but that’s clearly not the case. In laboratories and factory floors, universities and coffee shops, or even over a beer after work, people are sussing out better ways to do things. There is no monopoly on creative thought. But that leads us to a problem: How should we go about innovation? Should we hand it over to the guys with white lab coats? What we need is a clear framework for making decisions.
