There are lessons to be learned from all projects new and old, which is why you meet with your team regularly during the project and look back on the process afterwards.
Firstly we need to identify the comments and recommendations that can be learned. These can be a valuable knowledge asset for future projects. This can come from several sources, namely the records and documentation, the team members of the project and from all project stakeholders.
A good ‘Lessons Learned’ process provides documented evidence – note the detailed lessons learned during discussions in a report that all participants can respond to. You can distribute this report to the entire project team and retain it for future reference.
Analyse and organise the lessons learned so they can be applied and shared with other teams. They can improve the project management or be used in training sessions.
