A caveat or two:
- The organizational culture and existing processes within an organization may make it easier or harder to systematically learn from either success or failure.
- There may be a natural propensity to learn from failure (simply because it hurts and we don't want to do it again). Even if that can be demonstrated, it certainly doesn't mean that we can't learn from success. If we choose to learn from success and we put the right processes in place, there's no reason we can't do it.
