Episode 98 - Sharing Lessons Learned

June 16, 2019

Collecting our lessons learned and sharing them with others is a tribal behaviour that predates formal education.  Let’s talk about how to apply this in our team practices


  • In experimental cultures, you are always accumulating learning.  Long before the internet and even formal education, we had a tradition of sharing that wisdom among the tribe - at work, we have largely lost that tradition

  • Learning eventually leads to wisdom; knowledge that guides action

  • We should always collect, refine, and share our learning

    • Document your learning often - you can do this in Retrospectives or Reflections

    • Store, categorize and groom it often

      • Shared documentation system

      • Use tags or other metadata

      • Make it searchable and easy to access

      • Review it, memorize the stories around it, and share it often
