Projects are certainly learning organizations! This term, we will experience lessons learned from both our applications of project management and our team interactions during the development of our Capstone project. During a project, it is a good practice to learn from these experiences and continue to improve on the project and how we are completing it based on what is and is not working.
As a result of each two-week session, the project manager will conduct a lessons learned with the team and post a short paragraph to share what is and isn’t working related to the content of project management and the process of the team. (One of my tricks is to always phrase posted lessons learned to the positive – it is easier to share what TO DO versus what not to do). What should you as a team keep doing? Or stop doing? Or start doing? From a project management content perspective, what tools/techniques are valuable? What can be done differently?
Another benefit of this post – Throughout this term, our focus is within our specific teams and the iterative development of the Integrated Project Plan, it is also valuable to share what is working and not working (and, how we intend to improve it) with the other teams – there may be lessons we can learn from and share. Your lessons learned is open to the other teams – the intent is that the teams can share insights around the process and application of project management with each other.
(Also provide your two examples!!)
