Companies are now increasingly reliant on a diverse workforce to succeed. Putting together different cultures, identities, work experiences and expertise in a team spells more creative ideas and innovative solutions. But it can also prove to be a challenge. How do we leverage the cross-cultural advantage and foster global teams that work?

Based on articles and research papers by the faculty from INSEAD and other renowned institutions, this SlideShare explores the character of a multicultural team, and how we can turn diversity into a valuable asset.
