Mistakes are challenges for learning organizations: First, mistakes are associated with inferior work performance. Secondly, digital assistance systems are aimed precisely at avoiding errors or are able, thanks to their strong networking, to pass on errors in the course of operations to the process control system without the involvement of any persons involved.
This can lead to (a) that individuals are trying to avoid situations with error potential and therefore are restricted in their ability to perform, (b) learning-inhibiting leadership behaviour occurring or
(c) error experiences, which would be important for a deeper understanding of correlations, being suppressed by assistance systems.
in this work field, based on the results of the Forschungskolleg on corporate cultures conducive to learning, suitable management structures and handling practices of a digital or analogous conducive to learning handling with errors are examined.
