Examination

Most of us are accustomed to going through a careful deconstructive examination when we experience failure.  

What went wrong?  What did we not do?  What should we have done differently?  Who should we have had (or not had) on the team?  Would a greater investment of resources made a difference?  Lots of soul searching and assessment, often accompanied with a fair amount of lamenting and commiseration.

We normally don't go through the same level of deciphering and reflection when we score a win.  Typically, a perfunctory review, then PARTY!  We won!  Success!

Perhaps we should rethink.  The After Action Report (AAR) is just as important after a success as it is after a fail.  Much to be learned (and improved upon) either way.
