Charlene Li is the author of Open Leadership: How Social Technology Can Transform the Way You Lead.
In an article appeared in Business Week, Charlene Li goes back on the basic principles in innovation management :
"As an open leader how you deal with failure is as important as how well you deal with success. Can you accept the fact that people will make mistakes? That products will fail in the market? That decisions will have unintended—and sometimes unhappy—consequences? If you cannot be open to mistakes and failures, your colleagues will be afraid to step out or to speak up, stifling innovation and improvement."
