A core KM behaviour - deferring judgment

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

We see this in processes such as After Action Review and Retrospect, where the facilitator ensures that the meeting does not leap to judgment 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 judgment on our OWN ideas, if we are to be truly innovative.

Defer judgment - never drive your brain with your brakes on.
