An 'excellent' journey

I have nearly come to the end of my taught section of my master’s degree, and I must say, what a journey it has been. Not only in terms of friends and getting to where I am, but also in terms of what I have learnt. Sometimes I feel I have learnt more in the one year of doing my masters than I have my whole life. What a shocking thing to feel. Maybe it really is the environment in which I am learning. How knowledge is shared between friends and peers, as well as from experienced professionals and tutors.


I find myself linking things from everything I have learnt the whole year. Perhaps because the foundations of my learning are based on a very strong framework. I find myself linking design for six sigma to any situation where we deal with anticipation and prevention of risks and errors. This anticipation is evident in design for safety where it is absolutely crucial that no mistakes are made in regards to the safety of products. Another example is where we predict outcomes in order to try and remove any chances of negative outcomes after product launch, and incorporate the mechanisms for prevention in the design. In regards to knowledge management, this is only truly possible with adequate and reliable sharing, generation and evaluation of knowledge. Another example where this communication is needed is in the removal of wastes, as in the six sigma methodology. If wastes are noticed, but not communicated across to responsible managers, there is an evident lack of knowledge transfer in the organisation. Improving this will only result in more productivity and efficiency, leading to improved financial performance.


And once again, it always reverts to the very important role of leadership in governing, guiding and inspiring the rest of the organisation and others to achieve shared goals. In this case, it is the vision of a culture of learning, which is often regarded as a learning organisation. The learning never stops. It is a continuous cycle and there is always room for improvements and opportunities for learning, so the theory states. But practical cases suggest pretty much the same thing, so long as implementation is done correctly.


So how was I able to remember all this? I analyse this down to the very root in my opinion, that it is because I have been shown a different way of learning, a safe environment in which I feel comfortable to let my voice be heard. Somewhere I am able to learn from my colleagues with little/no judgement being passed. The experiences I have faced in this environment have led to a more relaxed way of learning, and hence transferring and sharing knowledge. Truly an ‘excellent’ journey.
