Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

"implicit" SF found in a "Software development box"

Just now I found a nice piece here:

It is called: "Project Retrospectives: A kinder, gentler, more productive way to learn from past mistakes"
And it contains this part:

The “Mining for Gold” Exercise:

* What worked well that we don’t want to forget
This list is for those things that most agree worked well and that we want to continue doing on the next project…

* What did we learn
Here is where we document cause and effects that have lead to learning…

* What should we do differently on the next project
This list is for issues that need to be done better next time

* What still puzzles us
This list is for issues that the project team doesn’t have enough information or skill to resolve. The issues on this list often require training or more thorough investigation…

* What do we need to discuss in more detail
Issues on this list are things that need further discussion, clarification, information…

And, interestingly, there is not one word about "Solution Focus".....

For me this is ok anyway: DOING Solution Focus for me is more important than the "label". And "Mining for Gold” sound nice....

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
