Epic Fail: The Lessons of History's Biggest Blunders
Monday, 29 August
Is failure always bad – or should we look at it as an essential on the path to innovation? Samuel West is the director of the Museum of Failure, which exhibits unsuccessful products and services from across the world. He speaks to Ahir Shah about how accepting when things don’t work out, being brave enough to fail and going through the dustbin of history.
“Most charities are terrified of failing at things - but the paradox is that if they don’t innovate they are probably doing the wrong things.”
“There are thousands of solutions - many of which will fail but we must take risks to answer huge questions.”
“Some CEOs keep projects alive through artificial respiration ,sometimes you need to know when to bail.”
