Interesting perspective on the value of taking planned risks as a means of building an organization’s capacity for change. A business that can stomach failure is better prepared to face and manage the change it won’t always be able to see coming. Even better than that, this kind of company will be less afraid to consider change on a day to day basis which will naturally give rise to proactive problem solving versus order taking. Building this kind of culture doesn’t happen overnight but can be seeded by encouraging cross functional and cross rank collaboration, exploring radical solutions applied in controlled applications and through on the job apprenticeship programs that provide opportunities for trial and error before taking on the official responsibilities of a new role.
