To put it another way, the questions are: based on what the company and its divisions want to achieve, how is success to be defined and thus measured, for its overall approach to innovation as well as for its individual projects like Project Loon and Google Fiber? And, arguably, these questions are ever more pressing given the recent ‘failure’ of Google Glass.
