Failing fast: The road to mediocrity



With continuous exploration of customer needs, talking to business and agility being the go-to principles on the tip of many tongues, “fail fast” is often repeated as a mantra towards succeeding and responding to the many changes needed to steer teams and companies into new ways of working.

No-one likes to fail however. Doing so, even in a fast and agile way leads to a broken idea, a fear of rejection that will not lead to the promised success, no matter from which direction you approach it.

It will leave you with a feeling that there simply could have been “more”. More awesome, more special, more of an aha-moment.

I invite you to join this trip through a little bit of history to show that there is a very careful balance to uphold between "understanding" and "failing", and to see what we can do today to put the "Oomph" in success!
