In our turbulent world, problems facing organizations are much more complex than ever before and require collaboration across different disciplines for innovative solutions. However, people have different problem-solving styles. This reality makes it difficult for people with different styles to work together efficiently to create real change. Disover an implementable cognitive problem-solving process that enables collaborative innovation. Individuals identify their unique preferences for different stages for the innovation process and learn how to synergize their efforts, avoiding the frustration and dysfunction that typifies much teamwork. Teams can effectively learn how to complete each other rather than cancel each other. We will provide real-world examples and a proven instrument to measure individual preferences. You will:

• Take steps to successfully innovate together in cognitively diverse teams.
• Facilitate the integration of diverse expertise to manage innovative projects through to completion.
