One area which is often done in a light touch fashion – if at all – is the Close Down review of a Project; some call it ‘post implementation review – PIR’
PMO’s add immense value by recycling lessons learned from the past, and bringing them into new projects starting up. Ultimately, this activity can increase an organisations capability in managing, leading and delivering projects.
In our new page on Close Down, there are recommendations on what to review, how to collate and re-use the information, and also how to have fun sharing the lessons learned with Project Managers by also offering them doughnuts!
Have a read through, and let us know if your organisation has been successful in making Project close Down reporting part of the Knowledge Management strategy?
