The Big Moo on diversity

- Create a group hiring criterion by only hiring leaders who bring something new - be it an academic discipline, cultural experience, physical capability, hobby, family background, or language skill - to the team.

- Cultivate the fringe by finding out who disagrees with current directions, constructively or not, and harvest the diversity of opinion.

- Cross-pollinate the ideas that come from the first two strategies so that innovative combinations, rather than compromises, arise.
