Instead, they centered around the need for experimentation, taking risks, and challenging the status quo. Respondents indicated that figuring out how to manage organizational factors and expectations was more important and more difficult than selecting the best technology solutions.

Risk taking is an integral part of success. Powerful people take risks, nevertheless, they don't take thoughtless hazards. Only a fool pushes in. Onlookers might read their actions as imprudent, but that couldn't be further from the fact. People who achieve success take calculated risks. They will think things through and evaluate their options. That they research and gain the information they need to make an informed decision.
