Interesting article in Business Week on failure. Summary - you can't succeed without trying out different ideas, some of which are going to be failures. Get used to it, nay, embrace the idea.
"Getting good" at failure, however, doesn't mean creating anarchy out of organization. It means leaders -- not just on a podium at the annual meeting, but in the trenches, every day -- who create an environment safe for taking risks and who share stories of their own mistakes. It means bringing in outsiders unattached to a project's past. It means carving out time to reflect on failure, not just success.
