Recording Lessons Learned

Whether or not you will continue to be involved in this type of project, others are likely to benefit from the experience and knowledge you've gained. At the end of your project, gather your team together and conduct a "postmortem" session, in which you can objectively discuss what went well with the project and what could be improved next time.

It's often helpful to have team members prepare notes in advance. In larger projects, you might find it more practical to conduct a series of meetings with different groups of team members and stakeholders, perhaps those who were responsible for different aspects of the project.

Be sure to have a concrete method for recording the discussion points. After the session, compile the lessons learned report, including solutions to identified problem areas.
