Failure in particular is dreaded in big organizations (where everything (read processes) is in place) for two important reasons:
1. Failure ends up as a bastard with no one willing to take the onus.
2. Even worse is when the processes don’t change and/or ignore the learnings from the mistakes. Unfortunately, you find scapegoats who are asked to take a walk.
Even with the ‘Failure is good’ mantra these days, you end up feeling if it is highly overrated.
God save them in the long run.
