Failure and Innovation: Google, Apple, Harley Davidson and More
Today I bring you Dr. Samuel West, curator and founder of the Museum of Failure in Sweden. The Museum of Failure is a collection of interesting innovation failures. The majority of all innovation projects fail and the museum showcases these failures to provide visitors a fascinating learning experience. The collection consists of failed products and services from around the world including Google Glass, Apple Newton and Harley Davidson Perfume.
Dr. West is a licensed clinical psychologist who transitioned into organizational psychology with a focus on innovation. After a visit to The Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia he decided to create the Museum of Failure which opened June 7th.
