We are living in a constantly changing world with increasing IT challenges both in size and complexity. Sorting out these challenges and turning them into opportunities requires a creative, adaptable, and effectively allocated team. Understanding underlying differences in diverse teams, such as differences in functional background, education, or personality, can facilitate creativity or group problem solving—but only when a group process is well defined.
