"Can We Really Call Them Lessons Learned' if We Keep Making the Same Mistakes?"
Every project team encounters obstacles and issues. Smart teams and organizations try to ensure that what they're tackling are new, unforeseen issues; not the same things the last team battled and overcame. Gathering "lessons learned" can't be a single, perfunctory event at the end of a project; it needs to be a natural part of the team's weekly process. And, the biggest revelation is -- those lessons need to be reviewed during a new project's initiation in order to have any value. By incorporating knowledge management practices into the project team's processes, youll have a better chance of side stepping the obstacles and an advantage for overcoming avoidable issues.
