“There is still a lot to learn, and there is always great stuff out there. Even mistakes can be wonderful.”
See more quotes from the comic genius Robin Williams who tragically died this week.It’s good practice to arrange ‘a lessons learned’ workshop at the end of every project. I’ve seen many mistakes made, and then the company, and even the same team on occasion, go and make the same mistakes on their next project. The most important part of making a mistake is being able to fix it. The second most important part is to learn from the mistake and avoid making it again. We should always pass our knowledge on to other people within the company so they can also learn from our mistakes.
Of course, it’s not only about learning from mistakes. When we manage projects successfully it’s just as important to pass the lessons of these successes on to other people.
