'Don't worry if you break it Darcey. I can put it back together because I designed this house actually.'
- Five year old Scarlett to her one year old sister Darcey.
Often decisions break things.
If our decision breaks something -
- or someone in our team's decision did
- and we or they made it using a deliberate process of inquiry -
(Instead of 'Hey! Look at me! Let me show you how high I am up HR's wire diagram!' or 'Eenie, meenie, miney, mo...' or 'I need to do something or we're all gonna DIE!')
- then we can inspect the wreckage and work out what happened.
Learning is behaviour modified by experience.
We will make a better decision next time.
We will advance closer towards where we want to be.
