We studied 588 real business decisions made by 184 teams in a wide variety of companies over 2 years. Here is what we learned:
Decision making drives 95% of business performance.* It's the most important thing managers and executives do at work.
Teams make better decisions than individuals 66% of the time. Teams bring broader perspective, identify new choices, reduce bias and improve accountability.
Diverse teams make better decisions 87% of the time. Inclusion instantly activates existing gender, age and geographic diversity for better business decision making.
Diversity can increase friction 15%, but inclusion boosts results 60%. The worst combination is an all-male team deciding what a diverse group executes. This happens half the time in companies with fewer than 30% women. The best combination is inclusive decision making and diverse execution.
