The Future of Work in Scotland: Fail to Learn: How we get better by getting it wrong - Scott Provence

The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with the author of "Fail to Lean: A Manifesto for Training Gamification"

What role should failure play in an organization? How often should people be allowed to fail? And when dealing with fast-moving or high-impact industries, is any amount of failure worth encouraging?

In this session, attendees will learn how the feedback structure of games can be used to challenge the way we typically look at failure. Attendees will learn a new system for fail-forward thinking that creates more collaborative environments, more creative problem-solving, and more long-lasting learning.

Through discussion and hands-on mini-exercises, this presentation will reveal that professional environments have a lot to learn from the commercial gaming industry. Through case studies and ready-to-use tools, attendees will leave with strategies for creating fail-forward approaches within their own organizations, and building a playful and fearless learning culture.

Learning Objectives:

What can the attendees expect to get from the session?

● Identify why we fear failure in professional settings
● Compare common failure ratios, rates, and costs
● Describe the steps to create effective failure loops in organizations
● Develop strategies for assessing and creating more gamified, fail-forward environments that increase reflection and self-efficacy
