Posted in Failure by chrisfremantle on December 29, 2015

More on failure, this time in relation to innovation. Article proposes three conditions:
1. Time and space for experimentation (always an issue eroded by ‘good’ project management, the hurry to evaluate, modularisation, time and motion studies, etc);
2. Knowledge ‘push’ is valuable too, and sometimes relevance becomes apparent later (‘pull’ is very popular but people need to know what’s possible in order to pull);
3. Connectivity – tell people about failures (links to ‘open’ methods but also to publishing failure, critical reflection not just KE, etc).
