Send Notification On Workflow Errors

Many of my clients have OOTB workflows enabled on their SharePoint farm(s). This will allow users to create and manage their own, simple workflows. However, one problem I have encountered is the support for those workflows tend to end with the creation of the workflow. 

One issue with user-implemented/supported workflows is notification when workflows fail. One of my client's requested a notification of failing workflows. My initial thought was to create another workflow to monitor and send notifications when user workflows entered into an error state. Then, I remembered SharePoint offers OOTB, I decided to check with the SharePoint community to see if there were any good, ootb solutions for notifying upon failure. I eventually came across Dave Sampson's post regarding his solution and voila! Simple, yet very effective solution! Check out his solution located on his blog
