The 2016 Ann Arbor Gathering unfolded over four days, June 22-25.
Theme: “Fail Better”
“Fail fast” has become a mantra of the design and high-tech world, but not all failures are created equal. During this Gathering we explored what makes a “good failure,” how can we become better at failing well, and how we can continue learning a lot from our failures.
Our “common read” for this Gathering was Stuart Firestein’s book, Failure: Why Science Is So Successful. See the collaborative commentary by the iiE community, or check out hypothes.is and view our community annotations of an excerpt from the book.
