FAIL is Not a Four-Letter Word

A session at Open Source Bridge 2013

Thursday 20th June, 2013

1:30pm to 2:15pm (PST)

Projects fail. Companies crash and burn. Screws fall out all the time; the world is an imperfect place. Just because it happens doesn’t mean we can’t do our best to prevent it or—at the very least—to minimize the damage when it does. As a matter of fact, embracing failure can be one of the best things you do for your organization.

During this session I'll cover:

  • The most common causes for failure
  • Suggestions for how to avoid failing
  • How to use failure to your advantage
