Co-founder of Apple Steve Wozniak's working history can be seen as a series of mistakes, but Harvard Business School suggests that the man who designed the first Apple computer learns best from failure.

The Working Knowledge article looks at Woz's career, noting that that it consists of more failure than success, but highlighting that many times, Woz would capitalize on his failures by reviewing work he had already done.

For example, in an interview regarding the design of the Apple 1 Woz said: "I laid out the whole board, and then I got an idea to save one feed-through [circuit], so I took the board apart, I trashed maybe a week's worth of work, and then I started over."
