A project’s lessons are derived from two aspects – those of Process Lessons and of Results Lessons
Results Lessons encompass the overall project, task execution and the efforts performed to produce planned results.
Process Lessons are derived from the procedures and practices used in the planning and management stages to execute the project.
The Results Lessons are generally technical lessons, with some non-technical lessons relating to (for example):
· Machinery performance
· Mechanical inputs by humans
· Invisible lost time
Process Lessons relate to;
· How one chose a specific methodology
· Why one picked a design
· How you used benchmarks
· Why the team decided on the value drivers
· Rationale behind the choice of procedures
· What drove the team to select certain trigger points
Teams generally hold AARs immediately after a specific task has been executed. The team involved are always therefore at the coalface. AAR members are the technical experts that executed the task. By design, this team will default to their technical knowledge. The learnings and ideas for improvement will almost always be of a technical nature.
It is therefore important that the opportunity is taken to gain lessons of the team put together its plan and how these relate to the material design and task execution.
