Leaders often say that the greatest obstacle to diversifying their organizations is their commitment to 'excellence' and 'meritocracy.' Scott Page's important book blows that myth out of the water, powerfully demonstrating that diverse teams are better: more creative, productive, and profitable. After this, there is no excuse for making excuses. --Naomi Oreskes, coauthor of Merchants of Doubt A powerful way to appreciate the problem with homogeneity. --Tim Harford, Financial Times If you want your business or team to perform better, read this book. With compelling evidence, examples, and writing, Scott Page makes the business case for drawing out diverse perspectives, and shows you exactly how to do it. A clear road map for every team and leader. --Laszlo Bock, former SVP of People Operations at Google and author of Work Rules!
