moral concepts (negotiable)

  • hanseatic
  • freaked out / nerdic
  • cutting edge

basic assumption

They are teached/ already at school level (errors are bad, don't do something wrong).

  • what can i do
  • who am i able to add critic to
  • natur
  • fellow men
  • industry

From the school already, we get trained to:

  • it is bad to say "that was my fault"
  • shift the know error to others
  • there is one majority out there who decides if this is a bad error
  • be perfect
  • always have a fallback (not to lose the face)

Define A Good Error Culture

This goals can be achived by exemplify the following steps (best by upper management but important for all).

  • "good" is enough
  • no fear of mistakes
  • many/fast update cycles (don't try to do big jumps, doing small steps results in small mistakes)
  • straightforwardness
  • to take the blame is not important
  • do not repeat your mistakes
  • do small and usefull steps (validate if your change contains a "only if")
  • use and understand the Twelve Principles of Agile Software
  • celebrate reached goals

Slides are available on judiths page. Again a nice talk and incredible what kind of easy mistakes we are doing in our regular live.
