SVP Denver would like to invite the community to a special, interactive webinar hosted by Kara Penn who has literally written the book on how to design smart mistakes and succeed sooner by learning how to fail better.

Thursday, March 18th, 12-2 pm MT

In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn the basics of her fail better model and then explore how to apply it to your own organization’s context. Kara will show you have to lay the groundwork for new projects that set the stage for learning, build room for experimentation, and then create space to reflect on hard-earned wisdom. Come ready to share your challenges and build a game plan that you can use immediately in your next project!

Access webinar slides.
