OK, you get the picture. We love failure. Failure—for lack of a better word—is good. Failure is right. Failure is necessary. It’s especially useful in the lean manufacturing process because it helps you get better faster. Afterall, to bring us the iPhone, you could say that Steve Jobs first had to bring us the Newton, right?
That’s why we’ll be taking a road trip to Brooklyn’s new Museum of Failure exhibition (open through mid-May) to get a history of the retail products and services that bombed spectacularly around the world. It’s a great reminder to keep pushing, problem-solving and innovating.
