We all avoid failing at things in life. It’s in our nature. Silicon Valley has attempted to glorify failure by ‘failing fast and breaking things’. But the message missing is how we learn from our mistakes, and how important that learning is to our personal and professional growth. We progress fastest when we face up to failure – and learn from it.
This talk aims to examine what systems we can put in place, what industries we can learn from, and how familiar methods like Agile and Design can help us all avoid making failures across the web industry.
Attendees will leave with a strong sense of next steps and takeaways they can fold into their design and marketing jobs and positions.
