The Other Lessons Learned

abcNot every lesson we commit to memory is directly related to the project at a project’s end. Bernadine Douglas writes in a blog for PMI what else can be garnered from our time with a project. The first she identifies has to do with team adjournment. It can be hard to part with colleagues you have gotten to know, so plan for the loss in advance, perhaps having a project completion celebration or using social media to stay in contact afterward. Another thing to think about is the organizational processes that were involved in your project. If you think there were processes that could have been handled better, you should approach sponsors and ask a task force to be instated to determine whether process alterations would be practical. Lastly, Douglas says to explore revenue breakthroughs good and bad with reports, which can save ailing projects through portfolio realignment or forward your career if you are able to discuss or publish your success in a public place.
