PITFALLS BY PETER DRUCKER


The better a man is, the more mistakes he will make, for the more new things he will try. I would never promote to a top-level job a man who was not making mistakes . . . otherwise he is sure to be mediocre.

CONCLUSION
Failure is an opportunity for learning. Business Success is dependent upon reactions of business failures Knowing what can go wrong is essential to avoid business failure Success and Failure exist in relation to expectations Most causes of failure are under the control of the entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs can avoid venture failures by managing known causes of failures which are under their control.
