Session Name: Failure Is Not an Option. It’s a Fact
Failure is an inevitable part of success. Failure in the context of innovation efforts has helped thousands of start-up companies to succeed but in the context of a known execution process, it can harm results or reputations or create undue risk. In software development we are situated at the cross road between innovation and known processes so how do we benefit from failure and achieve success? In this session we will explore several studies and best practices of successful companies that have embraced them both.
