Innovation and Failing Forward

When it comes to innovation, we have got to allow our Airmen to try. And we have to allow them to fail.If our Airmen have an idea on how to do something faster, cheaper, smarter or safer, we have to be willing to let them try. And if they fail, it's okay - as long as they fail forward. Failing forward means learning and growing and getting better. If we fail, as long as we grow for it, it's okay. Like Michael Jordan said, I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
