Lessons Learned Meeting: How to make it Excellent | Video

Project Management is a huge and complex discipline and we can devote our working lives to getting better at it. And one of the best ways to improve our performance is by holding a lessons learned meeting in each project we do.

And learning lessons from a whole project is not enough. We keep our performance sharp, by learning lessons as we go, conducting lessons learned (LL) meetings during projects as well as at the end.

For a simple answer to the question, ‘What are Lessons Learned?” check out our introductory video.

This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy

But how can you hold an excellent Lessons Learned meeting? One where people contribute openly and leave the meeting not just smarter, but wiser?

That’s what I talk about in this video. I cover:

  • What a Lessons Learned meeting is
  • When to hold them
  • How to prepare for your next lessons learned meeting
  • A simple, effective structure for your LL meeting
  • The outcomes from a good Lessons Learned meeting
  • What follow-up you’ll need

Every project is different. But they all share common features. So learning lessons from your experience is a key part of your professional development. And Lessons Learned meetings are a fundamental part of that process.
