About this capture

“All my successes have been built on my failures.” – Benjamin Disraeli
The development community is failing… to learn from failure. Instead of recognizing these experiences as learning opportunities, we hide them away out of fear and embarrassment.
No more. This site is an open space for development professionals who recognize that the only “bad” failure is one that’s repeated. Those who are willing to share their missteps to ensure they don’t happen again. It is a community and a resource, all designed to establish new levels of transparency, collaboration, and innovation within the development sector.
Get involved – share failures, build knowledge and encourage others to do the same – so we all benefit, today.
