“Failure is not an option…..” Daleks, the enforcers of Best Practice

Even if they don’t like Daleks, everyone should read Chris Bolton’s post (inspired by listening to the episode of Radio 4’s The Life Scientific featuring Professor Dame Wendy Hall) about technology, failure, and learning from failure. He considers the thoughts of John Caddell, Professor Amy Edmondson, Professor Dave Snowden – and  the Daleks’ response to failure.

There are also a lot of very thoughtful comments on Chris’s post. He published it on Ada Lovelace Day – a particularly appropriate day for being inspired by a renowned British female professor of computer science.

Weekly Blog Club was set up in early January 2012 to encourage people to blog regularly, and especially to encourage those working in and with the public sector, charities and voluntary organisations in the UK to find their own 'voice' through writing.
