The Lessons Learned Habit – Part 2. You know you’re supposed to capture lessons learned throughout your projects, but what’s the point if you and your peers never revisit them and learn from them? Make a new habit that whenever you start a new project, that you will always find at least three relevant lessons and apply them to your project. If you don’t have access to a lessons library, you can look for relevant case studies, news articles, etc.
Worst case, you can talk to a colleague and gather lessons from their experience. How valuable could it be to know they’ve had poor experiences with a vendor? Or that they can recommend contacts that can help you to get decisions quicker and cut through the red tape? Lessons are lessons, no matter where you find them.
Every time you start a project, gather and assess lessons.
