John R. Sharp worked as a linguist and analyst for the U.S. Government for over 40 years, teaching and writing curricula for Modern Standard Arabic and several Arabic dialects.

“The iterative cycle provides opportunities to convert weakness into strength by using the knowledge derived from failure to shorten the gap between practitioners and their goals.”
John Sharp, Iterate: Ten Lessons in Design and Failure

“Finally, at the praiseworthy end of Edmondson’s spectrum, we find intelligent failures. These are hypothesis tests and exploratory tests that open up potentials, and treat failure as an opportunity to learn rather than something to be avoided.”
John Sharp, Iterate: Ten Lessons in Design and Failure

“That’s how games work—we fail our way toward understanding through play.”
John Sharp, Iterate: Ten Lessons in Design and Failure
