And responding to the Constaninople post-mortem


Charles St. Louis published this very thorough Constantinople postponement post-mortem. I published a similar post-mortem on the first ENS launch attempt. It led to me becoming the ENS project manager.

These post-mortems are valuable. Yet they’re often neglected. The urge to start doing and fixing immediately causes many to believe slowing down is wasted time.

In fact, it’s the opposite. It’s an example of the “being informing the doing”. Slowing down and consciously processing lessons allows us to learn from them. The time invested pays itself back in multiples over time.

I advocate to hold sprint post-mortems for the projects I manage. While the cadence varies, it’s the consistency that matters. So does actually taking action on the lessons learned. They’re easy to leave behind once things feel like they’re going well again.

One valuable activity the Ethereum Cat Herders can conduct is more of these post mortems. We should also develop a system to organize and archive -

  • Lessons learned

  • Actions taken in response to the lessons

  • The result of the actions taken

I feel developing a knowledge base to hold this information would be valuable. The trick is how not only to build it but make sure it’s used. Maybe this is something the Ethereum Cat Herders can make happen too.

And now, on to this week’s jobs…
