  1. The first thing that comes in my mind when i think about reward failures is the “brainstorming” technique. During the brainstorming, we need many ideas as possible and people, sometimes, still being afraid to give their opinion and be criticized.

    We can make a “ideas ranking” rewarding the person who gave more ideas (not only good ones), he can get a free “happy our” after the meeting. The winner will be the best idea’s owner and his prize will be a status gain or lead the project to make the idea happens (+ bonus).

    I think its a good example to realize who we can incentivate the failure to achiveve the success!
