Dr. Samuel West: Museum of Failure

"All the literature is obsessively focused on success, but 80 to 90 percent of innovations fail. Why don’t these failures get the attention they deserve?” said Dr. West who founded the Museum of Failure. West says the museum provides a unique insight into the risky business of innovation. The museum is a collection of over one hundred failed products and services from around the world.

West will talk about why he started the museum of failure, what we can learn from it and his own very personal struggles with failure, including filing for bankruptcy.

Dr. West is a licensed clinical psychologist and PhD in organizational psychology.
