Diversity is a decipherable source of innovation and creativity, which can provide the
foundation of competitive advantage in an organization. Diversity is also closely tied to project
management since it is the organizational segment that facilitates its growth and expansion in the
specified business arena. It can have an impact on project management as identified in the article
(Ozgen Nijkamp & Poot, 2013). Nevertheless, the barriers associated with the incorporation of
diversity not only affect communication within an organization and project management, but
also affect the level of confidence in the employed workforce (Bassett-Jones, 2005). There are
other potential problems that might rise such as conflict and misunderstanding within the
organization, which can result in loss of competitiveness, low morale, abseentism, and poor
quality of projects. From this perspective, it is evident that Ford needs to conduct an analysis of
its primary cause of failure in Indonesia and Japan in order to identify the diversity related
solutions while viewing the entire scenario from this perspective in order to compete effectively
in the diversified environment.

performance. Therefore, the impact of cultural diversity teams on the performance of the team is
relatively uncertain due the presence of several other factors and conflicting perspectives.
