Retro-engineered learning

The principles of retro-engineered learning are simple. The facilitator or team coach helps the old hand explain the history of the team, in terms of its original and evolving purpose, the key decisions and choices that had to be made, and the thinking behind those decisions and choices.

  • Question: (to the old hand) What was the team set up to do?
  • Response
  • Question: (to the newcomer) What would your priorities have been in those circumstances?
  • Response
  • Question (to old hand) Was that what actually happened?
  • Response
  • Question (to newcomer) So, given those circumstances, what would you have done?

And so on until the present day.
