Because the demographic changes facing American business have been both recent and rapid, organizations and their managers often need help in developing a larger repertoire of managerial strategies and skills to capitalize on this pluralistic population. Today's diverse workforce poses both challenges and opportunities. It can offer an organization creativity, energy, and new approaches to solving problems. However, differences in backgrounds, values, and norms can also result in conflict, disruption, and loss of productivity. The outcome that results depends largely on how a workforce is managed.
