In The Absence Of Orders

When I was studying how United States Marines performed at a high level, I noticed that every patrol had a little ritual. No matter how beat up, tired or bloody they were, they would gather around in a circle and ask some simple questions ? did we achieve our objective? What went right, what went wrong, what can we all do better, and when will it happen? Marines had less than anybody else out there, and they knew they had to constantly look for new and better ways of getting the job done. What would change in your organization if people were continuously improving?
