A year of planning. Stressed-out staff. Little or no profit. Now what? Sometimes the secret to success is in an epic failure. Three museum professionals map the road to success through detours of risks and failures. We will spark innovation and find success by identifying the best time for risk-taking, understanding the value of failing, and creating tangible evaluation with outcome-focused goals to turn colossal mistakes into successes.
