lessons-learned

KeyedIn User Conference - 2015

A Project I recently implemented at a FTSE100 business was to change an organisations ways of working regarding Portfolio Management Planning and Processes. The main objective of the Project was to provide the Portfolio Office and Senior Management teams with greater visbility of resourcing effort, spent and forecast, across Projects and Programmes, in order to aid better decision making.

This Project was under a wider transformation Programme of which i was also working on, as the Senior Project Manager.


Do We Really Learn Our Lessons?

For Project Managers and anyone involved in delivering change to an organisation learning lessons is an important part of your job. Ensuring lessons are logged and shared helps businesses evolve by avoiding the same pitfalls and also repeating activities that went well.

I have always been extremely passionate about lessons learned and if done well, consistently and the organisation has a good process, can really help companies mature. Unfortunately all too often i have seen many projects avoid producing lessons learned and It is a sad fact that some organisations just don't value the benefit lessons learned can bring.
