Organizations successfully adapt to change by learning from incidents: developing ways to prepare, examine, discuss, and imagine them. Ryan Kitchens, Lorin Hochstein, and Nora Jones go beyond the traditional ways of responding to and learning from incidents. They explore more effective approaches and techniques that help you build the capacity to encounter failure and manage the consequences of failure successfully.
