Summary of Smart Failure for a Fast Changing World
The speed of change has outpaced learning, demanding a new outlook and approach.
Keeping pace with change requires a new approach, explains Eddie Obeng, founder of Pentacle, an online business school. Learning and innovation must occur swiftly and allow for “smart failures,” the errors people make when forging new paths. At times, Obeng’s fast-paced speech and enthusiasm almost obscure the message, but these same traits make his TED Talk engaging. getAbstract recommends this talk to anyone suffering from the fear of failure.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why the old rules of business no longer apply,
- What three factors most affect innovation and productivity, and
- Why you must embrace “smart failures.”
