120 seats available on a first-come, first-served basis: advance sign-up is required for reserved seating.

In our industry, we focus on enhancing business and social outcomes through the use of cutting-edge technology. We often use success stories and case studies to illustrate the practical application of technology to commerce or industry. However, we rarely embrace failure openly, although it is a common business mantra. Talking publicly about where we have failed may actually help us learn, make better decisions, and avoid making the same mistakes again.

During this evening seminar, we will explore projects that failed and the lessons learned from them. We will also provide tools to analyze failure and create a safe environment for failure in the workplace.

The evening will include:

A panel discussion and workshop facilitated by experts.

Participants will:
• Explore how we relate to failure
• Gain inspiration from models
• Acquire practical guidance in speaking openly of failure
• Learn how to create a safe environment for failure

Reserve your seat: Attendees registered to attend the SAP TechEd Las Vegas conference will receive an e-mail invitation from with details on how to sign up for this seminar.
