Talk Title

Failure = Opportunity for an Improvement 


We all fail at some point but, the more important part is how to tackle that failure. I see failure as an opportunity for improvement. It is ok to fail but what matters is how you bounce back! You can learn just as much from your mistakes as your successes. Throughout, my career I have seen loads of failures; gaps in automation framework, failure due to lack of resources, or even scrapping the project which the team worked on for 18 months! I always try my best not to repeat the same mistake, instead learn from it and open, so others don’t go through the same. We succeeded and failed as a team. In this talk, I’ll share how one failure opened our eyes to look deeper into the infrastructure, and we worked as a team to improve our estate.
