"A great piece of advice that I offer today – if you have an hour available, don’t bother reading this blog and go directly to the real thing. Dave is a great speaker and his intervention is certainly worth listening to. Dave kicks off with the concept of naturalising sense-making: how do we make sense in the world so that we can act in it? do we know enough to act?"

"Harford argues that today’s challenges simply cannot be tackled with ready-made solutions and expert opinions; the world has become far too unpredictable and profoundly complex. Instead, we must adapt—improvise rather than plan, work from the bottom up rather than the top down, and take baby steps rather than great leaps forward." The author Tim Harford will participate in the IFAD #failfaire: www.ifad.org/...

Fail forward with failure reports. Here is a guide from Fail Forward that is intended to support organizations who are interested in documenting and learning from their failures, and using the process as a launch point for organizational change. It is largely based on the process developed by Engineers Without Borders Canada (EWB), an organization which has been publishing its Failure Reports publicly since 2008.
