Learning From Mistakes

Always make new mistakes (Photo credit: elycefeliz)

An event occurred this afternoon that required an immediate resolution. When asked whether we were going to pursue the root cause, I could only respond with this question:

What’s the point of making mistakes if we’re not going to learn from them?

This is likely the shortest post I ever published here, however, I think the simplicity of the message makes the point very clear.

There’s always a better way and more than one solution. Learning from our mistakes creates opportunities to find new and better ways to improve our operations and Overall Equipment Efffectivenesss (OEE).

If you do wish to delve deeper into the topic of mistakes, I encourage you to read some of the related articles featured below.

  1. Thanks for the shout-out to the success-hack & issue log. Even thought they are sometimes painful, it’s great to build an organizational culture that never lets a good crisis good to waste.

    Good post!

      Thank you for your kind comment. I encourage the use of a log as suggested in your post.

      As for a good crisis, I contend that a lean organization continues to create them where others would wonder what all the fuss is about.

      Disrupt yourself before your competitors or customers do it for you.

      Thank you again, Redge.
