Philadelphia, PA, April 26, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- In this Soundview Live webinar, How Breakthrough Ideas Emerge from Small Discoveries, Peter Sims, author of Little Bets, will offer a whole new way of thinking about how to break away from the narrow strictures of the methods of analyzing and problem solving we were all taught in school so that we can navigate uncertain situations and unleash our untapped creative powers.
Sims will demonstrate that today’s successful innovators make a methodical series of little bets about what might be a good direction, learning critical information from lots of little failures and from small but significant wins that allow them to find unexpected avenues and arrive at extraordinary outcomes.
