Dr. Samuel West interview: The Museum of Failure

September 15, 2022

Our guest is Dr. Samuel West, a licensed psychologist with a PhD in Organizational Psychology and the founder of The Museum of Failure.

The Museum of Failure is a traveling collection of failed products and services from around the world - it serves as a fascinating learning experience which provides unique insight into the risky business of innovation.

We discuss how innovation and progress require an acceptance of failure, and how being open to failure and the lessons learned from it, can inspire us to take more meaningful risks.

We explore the fear of failure, both on the organizational scale and the personal level, and how there’s an increasing interest in spaces that allow for productive conversations on this topic. 

And finally, we dive into ways to measure creativity and the difference between good and bad failure.
