Lessons Learned - Leveraging Your Team’s Feedback
In many organizations today, we often hear of Project Managers following the best practices associated with project management process which includes the use of the lessons learned activity. Depending on the methodology used, Agile or Waterfall, the lessons learned activities may come at the end of a phase or sprint (Agile) or after the end product/result has been delivered (Waterfall). Either way, the lessons learned is a tool that can be utilized outside of the project team. This session will explore the many potential uses for these data gleaned from the project team.
Many organizations have the lessons learned activity included in the internal project management framework and process. However, very few organizations use the tool and even fewer organizations know how the results of this activity can be leveraged in other parts of the organization for more meaningful risk management planning, budget assessments, infrastructure planning and corporate strategy efforts for the 3 and 5 year plans.
Mary Beth will discuss how to utilize the results from the standard lessons learned process in the financial planning efforts for the PMO and the organization overall.
