What can an organization learn from the failures of its employees?


Misses is an internal, archival database for companies and employees to transparently document small scale failures. Workers upload their “misses” as audio and video stories, tagging them with pertinent themes and issues. Others in the organization are then able to quickly revisit relevant challenges and gain insights from their coworkers' setbacks. Employees can access the Misses database through mobile devices, computers and a physical “Failure Booth.” By creating an open and ongoing dialogue, Misses provides companies with the opportunity to collectively learn from failures before they escalate into larger issues.

Team Members: Allie O'Connell, Didier Boulet, James Dong, Lori Kent, and Thomas Aldinger
