Hans Fraeters from World Bank on Failure
The third annual FailFaire DC was an amazing celebration of failure as a mark of leadership and innovation in deploying information and communication technologies in the developing world.
We proved that failure is no reason to be ashamed. Failure shows leadership, innovation, and risk-taking in pushing the boundaries of what is possible in scaling ideas from pilots to global programs. There is great value in examining our mistakes as we go beyond the easy and the simple. So while we encouraged irreverence and humor, we improved our profession through speaking honestly about failure.
