Who really wants us to share learnings from our failures?
In the DEPP we talk a lot about sharing our learnings, and we are encouraged to share learning from our failures – but what do you do when your organisation doesn’t want you to share this?
We recognise that not all organisations, governments, donors or managers are comfortable with us sharing learning from our failures as well as from our success, so how do we encourage a culture of learning from failure outside of the DEPP, as well as within our own projects and programme? And even when our managers are OK with us sharing this information, they still don’t prioritise giving us the time or resources to develop learning products to share with others.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this, and if you have any tips or tricks to share on how we can convince our managers that it is important to share negative as well as positive learnings then please do share!
