All companies and teams include multiple disciplines and members with different expertise, why shouldn’t our meetings and brainstorming sessions?

Multidisciplinary collaboration means building a team of members with different backgrounds and skills that can compensate each other and work together toward the same direction to achieve the same goals. Multidisciplinary teams usually generate a wide range of ideas that are more diverse than a homogenous team can.

Also consider an interdisciplinary approach. Interdisciplinary teams are made up of people with a deep understanding of a particular skillset complimented by beginner or intermediate mastery of a diversity of other disciplines. These teams are not only able to generate many different exclusive ideas, but are able to see connections between seemingly disparate ideas. This mindset and dynamic is critical in the double diamond approach  when converging on ideas.
