Synopsis: If you’re aiming to innovate, failure along the way is a given. But can you fail better?
Whether you’re rolling out a new product from a city-view office or rolling up your sleeves to deliver a social service in the field, learning why and how to embrace failure can help you do better, faster. Smart leaders, entrepreneurs, and change agents design their innovation projects with a key idea in mind: ensure that every failure is maximally useful.
In Fail Better, Anjali Sastry and Kara Penn show how to create the conditions, culture, and habits to systematically, ruthlessly, and quickly figure out what works, in three steps:
1. Launch every innovation project with the right groundwork
2. Build and refine ideas and products through iterative action
3. Identify and embed the learning
Fail Better teaches you how to design your efforts to test the boundaries of your thinking, explore crucial interdependencies, and find the factors that can shift results from just acceptable to groundbreaking or even world-changing. Practical instructions intertwined with compelling real-world examples show you how to:
Make predictions and map system relationships ahead of time so you can better assess results
Establish how much failure you can afford
Prioritize project activities for disconfirmation and iteration
Learn from every action step by collecting and examining the right data
Support efficient, productive habits to link action and reflection
Distill, share, and embed the lessons from every success and failure
You may be a Fortune 500 manager, scrappy start-up innovator, social impact visionary, or simply leading your own small project. If you aim to break through without breaking the bank or ruining your reputation this book is for you.
From the Author:
We've seen it all over the world, in companies, non-profit organizations, and executive classrooms--not to mention the media: everyone knows we should learn from failure. But there's little guidance for how to do so. Stories of corporate heroes succeeding after they've endured setbacks may be inspiring, but they fall short of showing how to create the conditions for--and capture the benefits of--productive failures.
We wrote Fail Better to fill that gap. Our goal: provide the first repeatable method that anyone can use in their everyday work to harness the benefits of failure. Tapping into our own experience as consultants, instructors, advisors, and researchers, we knew it would be important to both inspire and explain. The underlying research and thinking was also important to include, and there are also plenty of examples. At its core, our book provides very practical advice on how to enable the right kinds of failure so that you can avoid the wrong ones.
