Recommended to me by a colleague from the standpoint of encouraging workplace diversity and inclusion.

It's fairly easy to read, filled with lots of concrete examples. The premise of the book is that involving more people in decision-making can lead to a better outcome. The author outlines several general components that help to ensure this better outcome.

The issue I have with the text is that the author doesn't ever address the norms of what constitutes a "better" outcome or a "best" result in decision-making. That would have improved the argument, imo.
