When assembling a diverse team, issues of demographic diversity often come to mind. However, diversity in problem solving style is a critical consideration. Kirton's Adaption-Innovation (KAI) theory explains how some people are more adaptive while others are more innovative in their style of solving problems. Because many of today's problems are complex, if not wicked, we need both adaptive and innovative approaches to problem solving. Of course, this diversity can strain relations among team members. The first step in the recipe for effective teams is to acknowledge the differences and celebrate their unique contributions.
In this webinar, Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Friedel will summarize 40 years of research (and practice) with KAI theory. They will outline specific strategies for integrating and supporting diverse problem solving styles team settings. From its original academic background, KAI has been widely adopted by management consultants and HR professionals. KAI is used extensively in corporations and organizations around the world, including many universities and military training centers.
