We’re kicking off the New Year with the first PMO Mini-Masterclass session in London on Thursday 24th January.
We’re learning lessons and you’re invited.
Most project management approaches incorporate a set of activities often referred to as lessons learned, in which project management professionals try to use the experience gained from running a project to improve the way that they run future projects.
A lot of the time, organisations do little or nothing more than document their experience and perhaps file it away, so this is less like lessons learned and more lessons identified, or even worse, lessons ignored.
Indeed, some people in the project management community think that the practice of lessons learned is so broken that it is not worth doing in its currently accepted form.
However, Ken Burrell thinks there is still value to be had.
This Mini-Masterclass looks at how organisations learn from the experience of running projects, and how this can go wrong. It offers some ways to fix the failures that can creep in at the various stages of the learning process, and offers some solutions by examining why this happens. This session can offer to both project managers and PMO practitioners some practical suggestions as to how to make things better.
The session also looks at the results gathered from a survey into the transferability of lessons between different types of projects and makes some suggestions for bolder approaches that can deal with several challenges at once.
