Increase the probability of successful innovation outcomes
Franco Oboni, President & Principal Consultant, Oboni Riskope Associates Inc.
  • Studying success stories is of no use to increase success.
  • We are better off studying failures, as they teach us what not to do and they are by far more numerous.
  • However, focusing on failures can lead to fear-induced paralysis.
  • Convergent quantitative, rational risk analysis allows us to use:
    • “past-failures” information
    • avoid fear-induced paralysis,
    • avoid excessive audacity and thus increase the chances of success.
  • We will review real-life cases and draw useful, general conclusions
