Why are not-for-profits encouraged only to share successes or best practices? Isn't there a lot that can be learnt from failures?
Since most not-for-profit organisations are dependent on public money, wouldn't it make sense to also disseminate and share things that didn't work? While the incentives to share successes are clear - good marketing can lead to good fund-raising; shouldn't philanthropists and donors encourage sharing of failures and reasons thereof?
