EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Numerous advances in basic research, surgical techniques, practice, and patient care have revolutionized surgery over the last 60 years and made the field with its many subspecialties more diverse but also more complex. The surgical profession places high demands on surgeons who must often make the right split-second decisions. This can easily lead to misjudgments or mistakes. Learning From Failures in Orthopedic Trauma—Key Points for Success is the first book of its kind to give surgeons the opportunity to learn from failures without making them themselves. Based on the Spanish book Errores en la Osteosíntesis by Rafael Orozco Delclós, this publication offers real case examples that have been collected over the past 25 years. It is an essential and valuable resource as it specifically examines the reasons and responses to surgical error in real cases from different anatomical regions of the body, thus helping surgeons avoid the most frequent errors in osteosynthesis. The collection of more than 70 cases will help surgeons recognize and avoid common failures, start reflecting in action, present failures as positive learning opportunities, and bring that knowledge into their daily practice. The book is divided into 9 sections that analyze different types of failures. Key features are: Analysis of failures to help surgeons avoid making mistakes that lead to those errors More than 20 detailed and illustrative case-based chapters that analyze failures and offer tips to successfully prevent those mistakes More than 1,100 x-rays, clinical images, and illustrations

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Learning from Failures provides techniques to explore the root causes of specific disasters and how we can learn from them. It focuses on a number of well-known case studies, including: the sinking of the Titanic; the BP Texas City incident; the Chernobyl disaster; the NASA Space Shuttle Columbia accident; the Bhopal disaster; and the Concorde accident. This title is an ideal teaching aid, informed by the author’s extensive teaching and practical experience and including a list of learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter, detailed derivation, and many solved examples for modeling and decision analysis. This book discusses the value in applying different models as mental maps to analyze disasters. The analysis of these case studies helps to demonstrate how subjectivity that relies on opinions of experts can be turned into modeling approaches that can ensure repeatability and consistency of results. The book explains how the lessons learned by studying these individual cases can be applied to a wide range of industries. This work is an ideal resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and will also be useful for industry professionals who wish to avoid repeating mistakes that resulted in devastating consequences. Explores the root cause of disasters and various preventative measures Links theory with practice in regard to risk, safety, and reliability analyses Uses analytical techniques originating from reliability analysis of equipment failures, multiple criteria decision making, and artificial intelligence domains

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Before embarking on a project, a principal must often rely on an agent to learn about its profitability. We model this learning as a two-armed bandit problem and highlight the interaction between learning (experimentation) and production. We derive the optimal contract for both experimentation and production when the agent has private information about his efficiency in experimentation. This private information in the experimentation stage generates asymmetric information in the production stage even though there was no disagreement about the profitability of the project at the outset. The degree of asymmetric information is endogenously determined by the length of the experimentation stage. An optimal contract uses the length of experimentation, the production scale, and the timing of payments to screen the agents. Due to the presence of an optimal production decision after experimentation, we find over-experimentation to be optimal. The asymmetric information generated during experimentation makes over-production optimal. An efficient type is rewarded early since he is more likely to succeed in experimenting, while an inefficient type is rewarded at the very end of the experimentation stage. This result is robust to the introduction of ex post moral hazard.

When considering the complexities of implementing a next-generation data pipeline, the risk of over-promising and under-delivering is incredibly high due to the overwhelming expectations placed on predictive analytics today.

Natalino Busa discusses how to bust the myths, deconstruct the false assumptions, and avoid common pitfalls in order to build and deliver successful data pipelines that deliver real value to your organization.

Essays On Learning From Failure While Pursuing Novel Innovation

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Despite significant interest on the topic of learning from failure in the management literature, we have little insight into how firms learn from failures to enhance subsequent innovation outcomes. This thesis takes a step forward in this direction by emphasizing the causally ambiguous nature of innovation, and the crucial role played by failures in helping to resolve this ambiguity. I argue that failures represent failed hypotheses, thus influencing the organization to reconsider its existing beliefs and seek out alternate theoretical explanations. In this way, failures can generate rich new insights into processes of innovation that bring about novel outcomes. In this thesis, I use three different contexts to examine how firms learn from failures. By using three different contexts, I am able to shed light on different mechanisms that help firms learn from failures in their pursuit of discovering novel innovation. In the first essay, I examine how firms learn from their own failures to enhance the novelty of subsequent innovation. In the second essay, I examine how litigation directed against a firm accused of patent infringement—a failure on this firm’s part–offers it a unique opportunity to learn vicariously from unintended knowledge spillovers during litigation. Finally, I use the context of alliances to examine how firms learn from their R&D alliance partners’ prior experience with failures to enhance their new product development capability. I test hypotheses for these studies using a unique database that captures drug development project characteristics, patent litigation and R&D alliance information pertaining to the global pharmaceutical industry.

One of the most difficult business challenges has nothing to do with data or technology-it has to do with people. While it's fairly easy to assess potential hires' knowledge and skills, it's much harder to gauge soft traits like attitude.

Tony Tjan explains how overlooking personality and attitude in favor of technical expertise can cost you. Make sure you're never in that situation by learning the most important questions to ask during the hiring process to build a stronger, more successful organization. Recorded on March 26, 2019.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Learning from Entrepreneurial Failure provides an important counterweight to the multitude of books that focus on entrepreneurial success. Failure is by far the most common scenario for new ventures and a critical part of the entrepreneurial process is learning from failure and having the motivation to try again. This book examines the various obstacles to learning from failure and explores how they can be overcome. A range of topics are discussed that include: why some people have a more negative emotional reaction to failure than others and how these negative emotions can be managed; why some people delay the decision to terminate a poorly performing entrepreneurial venture; anti-failure biases and stigmatism in organizations and society; and the role that the emotional content of narratives plays in the sense-making process. This thought-provoking book will appeal to academic researchers, graduate students and professionals in the fields of entrepreneurship and industrial psychology.
