Frameworks are teaching frameworks

product learning

The danger comes when companies lose sight of the fact that many frameworks are teaching frameworks. They emerged when someone said, "ok, this is what we arrived at organically; how would I explain to someone else what we do?" Or "how would I teach someone what we do?" Companies pay millions of dollars to "implement" frameworks that were never meant to be implemented—the framework was meant as a starting point.

My comment:

I liked this framing. A lot of times, when you are looking for a solution, you tend to treat everything as a cooking recipe: follow these steps and you will succeed. It never happens like that. It is there to make you think and take it as a guide, not as a recipe.
