Everyone makes mistakes, but very few of them lead to success. In Brilliant Mistakes: Finding Success on the Far Side of Failure (Wharton Digital Press), Paul J. H. Schoemaker argues that missteps can lead to brilliant insights that result in game-changing innovations. In fact, not making mistakes may be the greatest mistake of all. The trick is to know when and how to make mistakes that can jumpstart success.
