Are we too afraid to innovate? – Harvard Business Review

Are you in an environment where innovation is imperative but failure and risks are punished? How can we truly innovate when we’re afraid of the consequences? To have the freedom to test new ideas, failure must be embraced as part of the innovation process. Fail quicker, learn faster:

“The trick is to remember that those who experiment must also fail. And unless we protect them from the consequences of this failure, people will stall. They may talk a good game. They may participate in all those brainstorms. But the real world of innovation will remain undone”
