So I made a mistake at work not being thorough enough. It's my fault and I accept it.
Where I'm taking offence is that this mistake could have been preventing with basic tooling. And by basic I mean industry standards.
An analogy would be asking an accountant to work with a calculator only and not with Excel and telling him to be careful.
I said we can improve the situation and which tools are needed. The proposition is well accepted by my team, but the team that would have to set in place the tool and support it does not want to and they haven't for a long time now.
My question is how to react when I'm asked what happened?
- Do I just admit my mistake and say it won't happen again.
- Admit the mistake and provide feedback on how it can be prevented.
- Something else.
