Innovation means making mistakes, and learning from them

Here is an interesting interview with Tim Jackson, from Tech Capital Partners, from yesterday's Report on Business. In it, he talks about the value of making mistakes, learning from these, and leveraging this forward as part of the R&D innovation process. Some time ago I wrote about the need to fail fast and learn quickly, and to build on our successes and failures. This is a staple of innovation literacy - the ability to solve problems,creatively, and to build ideas from disparate parts.
