Common wisdom says that success breeds success, and indeed this is how most VCs pick startups, businesses select talent, and singles search for dates. In contrast, the evidence from science to startups shows that only repeated failure breeds success.
In Disruption Games, futurist Trond Arne Undheim reveals how companies (and individuals) can build a successful, multi-faceted innovation portfolio and may experience deep learning from failed initiatives.
Over the next few years, successfully managing failure will become a necessary growth strategy for any individual, firm or collective. Are you prepared?
Disruption Games fulfills the need for actionable insight on what’s truly driving change and how to become a change-maker, not just be affected by it.
