PEOPLE: PATH TO THRIVING

INTRODUCTION
In our first issue, we mentioned
Steve Jobs and Apple as failing
forward examples. For this issue,
we thought we'd remind everyone
who can't live without their Post-It
Notes that global giant 3M didn't
think much of this "stumbled upon"
technology for several years.
In 1968, Chemist Spencer Silver
was working at 3M trying to create
super strong adhesives for use
in the aerospace industry. He
accidentally managed to create an
incredibly weak, pressure sensitive
adhesive that did not interest 3M
management as it was seen as too
weak to be useful. Five years later,
Spencer found the right manager to
listen to his idea, and co-worker
(Art Fry) perfected the application
after hearing Silver share his findings.
