Why deferring judgement is important in KM

Defer judgement - never drive your brain with the brakes on.


One of the ten key elements of an Organisational Learning culture is Openness, and part of the key to openness is deferral of judgement.

We see this in processes such as After Action Review and Retrospect, where the facilitator ensures that the meeting does not leap to judgement until all voices have been heard and all root causes explored.

We see this also in innovation processes, where all ideas must be examined, as sometimes the wildest ideas hold the most promise.

In the video below, Dr Min Basadur, the creativity guru, explains how we much even defer judgement on our OWN ideas, if we are to be truly innovative.
