I was reading an article a month ago and this movement has its published list of mistakes since 5 years ago. Every year, they owned their mistakes to their constituencies, members, and the general public. Reading this gives me an insight that they are truly a learning organization with the discipline to not put things under the rug or water down certain actions that almost put their organization into peril.
I have written about organizations that are learning and unlearning at the same time. This dual movement requires that they take courage to face the missteps and act to reverse or mitigate those. This is not just transparency par excellence. This is living what they basically put in their values poster or their values statements. At the end of the day, either you really live it or you just mouth it for the sake.
Kudos to this strong organization that is not afraid to say they are wrong when present evidence suggests otherwise or current analysis remits an error of judgement.
We fully know by way of hindsight and much of that learning comes from consciously improving every year. How hard is it to simply say, "we made some mistakes. Learn with us and from us.
