IN THIS SUMMARY

It has become a truism in business today that failure is inevitable—and that effective leaders learn from the experience of failing. But without a roadmap, turning mistakes into positive, goal-driven insights and actions can be difficult. In Fail Better, management experts Anjali Sastry and Kara Penn offer a systems approach to evaluating what does and does not work for a team, and designing new practices that will maximize the team’s capacities, skills, and opportunities. Overall, their method ensures that every failure is maximally useful in the lessons it imparts as well as the changes it inspires.
