Lessons Learned Meetings – Dumb Idea?
Are waiting to do lessons learned meetings at the end of the project valuable or by then is it too late and they are just dumb?

Hello Project Managers, What is “Lessons Learnt” or “Learning from Experience”?Is it about transferring relevant knowledge of an individual to the many?
Is it about “Experience is the best teacher”, and so we should always capture our important experiences and teach them to others?
Is it about not repeating mistakes of the past but repeating its successes?
Is it about collecting the individual tacit knowledge of the organization and transient them into the organization’s wisdom?
Personally I think it all of the above and more.
So my question is do you apply “Learning from Experience” in your organization? If so, how do you do it?

Learning Lessons from Lessons Learned
Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him. During the last decade of last century, many companies had..
We really need to talk about knowledge..

How do we know what it means to manage a project? In this APM Knowledge SIG Courageous Conversations event, Dr Jon Whitty and Dr Judy Payne invite you to challenge preconceptions about project management knowledge.
Project management knowledge. Knowledge about project management. What is it? Where is it? Who creates it? When is it needed? Why is it important? Where is it used? Who owns it? These are some of the most difficult questions to answer about project management knowledge.
This interactive and stimulating event will address these questions and explore how our preconceptions about knowledge affect the way we feel and act; the role of professional associations; and how knowledge about project management develops – or doesn’t.
Please don’t expect definitive answers. This event is one strand of a conversation that we hope will lead to new concepts, new language, and better understanding of the issues relating to project management knowledge. It’s our profession. We want to encourage a greater confidence in the APM community to talk freely and fearlessly about new ways forward. Are you brave enough to join in?

Many thanks to Shim for his paper review of the SLLCK model. Shim has a great project management blog and I always enjoy reading the posts.
On the PM LL front, I have just started with the PhD and very busy with action research’activities… I will provide some updates over the netx few months.
PM World Journal: Going Beyond Lessons Learned… I like it. David Pells is back as the Managing Editor for PM World Journal. You can read the first Volume-Issue at http://pmworldjournal.net/.
As you know I am passionate about lesson learned in the PM community so to have PM World back will only be a positive way forward to help us all share PM Knowledge. I welcome the following comments from the first issue:
“ The new PMWJ also represents a new model for publishing P/PM articles and papers. Going beyond “lessons learned”, we want to aggressively promote publication as a way to capture lessons learned and good practices in P/PM and to share that knowledge with those who may need it most – students, young project managers, and those in project-based organizations, industries and emerging economies around the world. In many cases, those are the ones where better, faster and more efficient delivery of project results can positively impact thousands of human lives.
Knowledge sharing can take many forms, which is why we offer various categories of articles and papers in the new PMWJ – featured papers, advisory articles, commentaries, editorials, case studies, personal stories, news articles. Some new knowledge is based on serious research, or experience on actual programs and projects. New lessons learned or good practices grow from specific applications, the solving of specific problems or participating on successful teams.
Lessons Learned Reports are too often prepared for internal distribution, after which they disappear into company archives, files or book shelves. Where possible, please consider sharing those lessons learned, experiences and successful practices with others around the world. Few are likely to be direct competitors; many readers will be extremely grateful.”
I am encouraged and support the goals of PM World Journal:
- to promote and support the creation of new program and project management (P/PM) knowledge;
- to promote and support the sharing of that knowledge with individuals and organizations new to P/PM or where such knowledge is sorely needed;
- to provide greater recognition and visibility for those who create new P/PM knowledge (authors);
- to provide a robust, easily accessible library of global P/PM knowledge and information; and
- to promote and support the use of modern P/PM for solving global problems.
I know I will be a regular visitor to this site and I plan to participate over my PhD research journey.

Duffield_Whitty_2012_A systemic lessons learned and captured knowledge SLLCKmodel for project organizations
While researching lesson learned about the Deepwater Horizon Spill I came across the following Texas Refinery Explosion speech by BP Senior Group Vice President for Safety & Operations John Mogford. “This was a preventable incident,” he said. “It should be seen as a process failure, a cultural failure and a management failure.”
Have we heard this before?
