Go for the Gold! Leading a Team to Victory, Page 2
6. Review the Highlights
One of the biggest wins for an organization is collecting "lessons learned." Think of this as an instant replay in a televised game where a moment is slowed down, reviewed, examined, and analyzed. That data provides valuable groundwork for the next time a similar project is launched.
Identify what worked and what didn't work for a lessons learned report. This can be a living document that evolves as the project moves through its timeline. It can be used for future forecasting and budgeting, planning, and staffing as well as evaluating process and structure.
Go for the Gold!
Okay, you've got your bag of tricks and you're ready to lead your team to victory this summer. Remember, by passing along this information to members at all levels, you're passing the torch and nurturing a team of winners. Good luck!
