Dave (not that one) writes about Fear of Failure

I just came across Dave Dupre's blog. Some good reading there, for example:
"[...snip] If the single test does not show a huge improvement, the project is considered a failure and scrapped. This happens all the time, and it always stifles innovation. Why propose something new if you have to be right all the time?

Innovation does not proceed on a schedule. To maintain a culture of innovation, occasional failure must be allowed - even encouraged! As long as you learn from your mistakes and move on and get better, the team and the company will be better off." (from Fear of Failure)
