This is something we do every month, a dedicated time to talk – asking ourselves what have we learnt? As individuals but also as a company.
How can we improve what we personally do and how does that inform our product.
Suggested by a member of the team and widely embraced it’s been a great success. Each time we do this it creates more change in the right direction. Thus improving the directionality towards our goals.
Then after reading this article from my friend Colin Nagy on how the green berets operate we’ve adopted more frequent learnings chats, after a big pitch, after a product change.
You might ask why should we learn from the green berets or the military from that matter. Well they’re designed to have agile teams which deliver specific objectives. Highly trained to execute missions over and over. And that’s what building a business is like, a stream of specific objectives which need to be constantly executed, evaluated and then adjusted.
