October 4, 2019

For the Fall 2019 issue of our magazine, which explores the dynamics underlying innovation success and failure, we invited best-selling author Dan Roam to share his take on the “fail fast” mantra. Dan will be among the speakers at our Impact 2019 gathering in San Francisco this month, leading a two-hour workshop on “Closing the Innovation Blindspot through Visual Storytelling.”
