Abstract:GOAL- Nowadays top managent teams have a big impact on the performances of organizations and thereby on today’s society. One of the main contributors to the performances of organizations is the diversity of top management teams. Diversity can be divided in four different forms: technical, cognitive, and demographic and culture. In the past there is done research to different characteristics as: average age, average tenure in a firm, education level, gender diversity and mobility within the organization. However most of the research is done in the eighties and nineties. Therefore we will do a new study in which the ABD is used a case:  To give you an idea about why a diverse workforce is important and how the government deals with it  To perform a career analysis in order to say something about the similarities between top managers
