The concept of "diversity" enjoys a good reputation, in general, but almost all of us have heard opinions such as "Years and years of attending awareness and social inclusion seminars, and the bottom line has not increased by a penny" or "They said the solutions would be better, but I still work the same and the innovation has been the same". Academia supports this discrepancy between the theory sought in the business world and the practical reality obtained. In this technical note, we analyze the positive and negative effects of heterogeneity in top management teams (MDTs), responsible for making the company's strategic decisions.
