Learning from failure
From Library Success: A Best Practices Wiki
Ideally, we can learn more from failure than we can from success. Are we (you) willing to share failures?
I know: The word itself makes you nervous. They aren't failures. They're learning experiences. They're premature innovations. They're qualified successes.
Here's the definition I'm using:
- Failure:An initiative or process that was either terminated before a planned ending date or that failed to achieve the stated goals.
Contributions? I'll create a "Failure" subcategory when (if) there are any pages that start here...
There's also a Learning from failure page on the Library Leadership Network. --Waltcrawford 12:41, 28 March 2008 (EDT)
And, in a mere three months with publicity elsewhere, we've seen the number of shared failures I was more-or-less expecting here: Zero.
Why am I not surprised? --Waltcrawford 12:40, 5 August 2008 (EDT)
