A “Welcome Failure” Culture – Developing your personal
Field Guide to make this vision come true!

Presenter: Sabine Wojcieszak, Enthusiastic Agile & DevOps Enabler, getNext IT


We all know that we need to learn from failure to improve our work. But still it is hard to talk about failure in an open way without blame but a lot of learnings. There is a gap between what would be the best and what is daily practice. But why? And what can you do to overcome this in your team or company?

Intended Audience:

This workshop is made for team leads, people development, C-level and other roles who are interested in creating a change.

Learning Outcomes:

Following questions will be discussed:
– The meaning of failure in the VUCA world
– Correlation of planning, control and failure
– How is your failure culture?
– How is your personal mindset according to failure?
– Why experiments are important in a positive failure culture
– Failure, resilience and innovation
– How is your individual vison of a positive failure culture?
– How can you bring this vision to life?

At the end of this workshop every participant has created an own “road map” with ideas and next steps. We will use the Manual Thinking method during this workshop.
