The Dinosaur Principle is a methodology that makes people realize that sometimes what feels like success can be the way to failure. By learning how to cope with the uncertainty that leaving the comfort zone brings, we prevent ourselves from failure out of blindness and embark on a journey to long-term personal growth.
In this workshop we learn tools that help to cope with mistakes and failure as individuals and teams. We look at what would be the bottom of the learning curve by analyzing what keeps us personally growing and what gives us energy. Since this particular motivator is something different of everyone of us, there are various approaches presented in our Workshops.
“Assumptions that do not associate with probabilities create a false sense of certainty. The Premortem technique raises awareness of possibilities, including their likely consequences, to enrich planning.” Gary Klein
Pre-mortem is a technique of working backward by considering alternatives that emerge from failure assumptions from all members, contributors or collaborators of a project. It broadens the scope of scenarios examined and can include key factors.
Decision makers are enabled to gain input from project members that otherwise often remain untapped but can be of key relevance.
Unlike a post-mortem, the project is dissected into several aspects before it has actually started. Ideally a project kick-off has already taken place and the general project plan is available, but in a very early stage.
