Lessons Learned - a Collaborative Process with "Collaboration Success" Indicators

Michael Sampson - Currents

A Lessons Learned process is, or is ideally, a collaborative process - in an environment of shared practice, with trust among the members of the group, explore the "lessons" the group can take from its past practice, so as to apply those learns both to its own future practice, and the future practices of the organization. As with collaboration, there are many technologies that can be used - most commonly a "lessons learned database" - but if that's all the process is, it will fail.

Focus on the Process - The "Why" Not the "What" for Social Software

Michael Sampson - Currents

Jordan at Traction Software reviews the recent Deloitte study and my User Adoption book , and comments: " When you focus on the "why," people stop looking at the platform as a "blog" or "social" system but rather as a work-process system.

The patterns that take over become hardened and information infrastructure starts to take root.

The idea is that the viable P enables further development and learning. Without a viable P (that’s fully social) we have blind spots that are insurmountable. So that first step is really important.
