Upcoming Webinars

Learning While Doing Projects

Feb 1, 2023 2:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Modern work can be complicated, and economic pressures require businesses to improve continuously.  The need for innovation, distributed teams, and competitive and regulatory pressures drive an organization to improve and learn constantly.  Learning throughout the project is not something that should be the focus of only the Agile approaches, such as scrum.  From experience, it is not motivating for a team to burn their metaphorical hand on the same familiar stove burner.  A team with recurring failures of the same type differs from how to improve morale or grow competencies.  Failures may not be fatal if these are used as opportunities to learn.  Failure is not motivating when nothing new is learned or experienced.  In this webinar, we will discuss learning opportunities, things our project can do to encourage learning, and what things we do that discourage learning and growth.
