Research shows: A good error culture is related to a firm's agility, innovation capacity, and profitability. But what is a good error culture? And even more important, how can you establish one?

In a good error culture, errors are managed proactively and constructively. That's why we call it an error-management culture. In an error-management culture, errors are anticipated, errors are corrected immediately, they are communicated quickly, they are learned from, and they are risked (e.g., when experimenting).


But an error management culture doesn't just happen.


An error management culture develops when both the performance standards and psychological safety are high. If there is a lack of psychological security, we speak of an error-fear culture. If performance standards are low, we speak of an error-tolerance culture. And if neither is present, then an error-resignation culture emerges.


Let us work together to establish a good error-management culture in your company!
