Being human & productive: Making mistakes is very human. If mistakes and communication about these are not welcome, part of a human being is not welcome – and who wants to have half employees, which are only half committed and already half gone? Entire humans are more productive, more creative and more happy.

Dare the change: Being afraid of making a mistake can paralyze and block the view on chances and positive sides. In new situations mistakes may happen, but only if you accept this possibility can you make the way to your goals.

Ways to innovation and progress: Most successful complex systems evolved through ‘trial & error’. Only if mistakes are part of ‘the game’ the interest to try and to discover emerges.

Learning organization: Everything works fine, there are no mistakes. Every hidden mistake is a missed possibility to learn, and every omitted possibility to learn endangers the stability of the organization. Prevention is better than cure – Lots of small campfires are better than a forest fire.

An open-minded and tolerant handling of mistakes supports learning, innovation and decision culture, change, performance and working atmosphere.
