Innovation Confessions invites people to share real experiences from innovation projects that did not go according to plan, so we can all learn and become more successful innovators.
We are extremely excited about Innovation Confessions. Our mission is to transform how we tackle local and global challenges by sharing practical advice from mistakes made in real innovation programs. The knowledge comes directly from people involved in projects – straight from the horse’s mouth!
There is immense value in learning from these cases. However, it is rare for organisations to see mistakes in innovation projects as opportunities to improve. This has to change if we want to transform how we tackle local and global challenges. We need to learn from mistakes and share the learning across the private and public sectors.
Innovation Confessions matters because it enables, for the first time, the sharing of vital lessons from innovation initiatives across sectors.
