To move beyond anecdotes and formally argue that diversity trumps ability, we must say precisely what diversity means. Defines diversity as differences in how we represent or encode situations and problems (perspective diversity) and in how we generate solutions to problems.
No one person would have cracked the Enigma code even once, let alone twice. Could Crick have discovered the double helix without Watson, or Watson without Crick? Most historians of science would say not. The Beatles were certainly more than the sum of four moderately accomplished musicians. You get the picture. In all of these examples, people succeeded not by being brilliantly capable individually, but by leveraging their differences to achieve much more than they could have if they were acting alone.
