Success and Failure. Learning from experiments.

A Management 3.0 Bitesize

"The only way to win is to learn faster than everyone else."
Eric Ries, The Lean Startup

We've often heard that we can learn from failure.

We sometimes hear that we can learn from our success.

But why leave learning to chance when we can create our own opportunities to learn at work?

The best opportunity for learning — and innovation — is when there’s a 50/50 chance of success or failure.

In this course you will learn:

- How to find opportunities for celebrating at work.

- How to use the Celebration Grid to help your team develop.
The Celebration Grid is a framework to help you map out the learning opportunities in your team and organization.

- How to set up experiments and learn from them.
Experiments offer golden learning opportunities, whether they end in failure or success (or somewhere in between).

Founded by agile management influencer Jurgen Appelo (Inc Magazine's Top 50 Leadership Expert, #1 in Europe), Management 3.0 is a leadership methodology, four books, and a series of workshops given by licensed change facilitators in more than 80 countries.

"It's not about the first-mover advantage; it's about the fast-learner advantage."
