Happy St. Patrick’s Day. The title is of course Gaelic for “Embracing Failure”. An opportunity to look at another country’s cultural attitudes toward Fáilte Failure which Irish Times article “‘Try again. Fail again. Fail better.’ Irish business is embracing the ‘fail fast’ culture” seems to embrace it with all of the enthusiasm of an Irishman belting out song in a pub after quite a few Guinness pints:

  • Irish CEOs have embraced what i’s called a ‘fail fast’ culture in their organisations quicker than their global counterparts, according to the KPMG Global CEO Outlook. 82% of CEOs surveyed want their employees to feel empowered to innovate and try new things without worrying about negative consequences.”

May the pluck of the Irish be with you!
