The whole idea of "blameless postmortem" is just a crutch incompetent people like to use to avoid taking responsibility.

@jamescgibson Can you expand on that? Or is there a specific example you are thinking of?


No, none specific, but basically, in any company, either (1) things went according to plan, in which case there's no postmortem to be had, or (2), they didn't, in which case _someone_ had responsibility for it.

Note that 'going according to plan' isn't the same as going well, if the company's e.g. hurricane plan is 'hope there's no hurricanes and if there is hope the power doesn't go out', then if the power goes out, there's no post mortem: things went according to plan.
