Life after life

My bookclub (my fiction club, not my knowledge & learning club) is reading “Life After Life” by Kate Atkinson. If you don’t mind some spoilers, there is a great discussion on the BBC World Book Club here.

And last night I watched Groundhog Day, with Bill Murray (it’s on UK Netflix at the moment).

Why am I on about these two?

For me, it’s an incredibly seductive idea – to be able to relive days, having more time to experiment and learn, to be free from any negative results longer term and having the opportunity to change and adapt and grow.

In the real world, the best we can hope for is to learn from our mistakes (and only make new ones).

Bill Murray and the groundhog have had enough!

I can’t offer you an infinite number of lives, but I can ask if you need to include some post-action reviews and reflective learning projects as part of your KM strategy?

You can read more about AARs (After Action Reviews) here.
