Webinar (CPA Crossings): CFO Series: Accomplishment Follows Failures-Experiment More!


Every success is the result of numerous experiments that failed. Every scientific advance was preceded by failures. To be direct, failures lead to success. Every failure is temporary, merely an opportunity to improve. We will review why failures are feared. Successful organizations continuously experiment, e.g., QVC, so they can learn and stay ahead of the competition. Recall the maxim – if you keep doing what do have always done, then you always get what you always got. We will demonstrate the advantages of embracing experiments as a method to improve the organization and fuel growth.
