Step 4 – Design a debriefing workshop

Design a workshop with the project team. The key objective is to analyse and agree the key lessons learned.

In this step, the objective data to complement the subjective findings from step 3 should be prepared. Possible categories could be:

  • Cost metrics
    (e.g. person-days of effort for each of the major deliverables).
  • Schedule metrics
    (e.g. original schedule, history of schedule-slippage events, analysis of schedule predictability).
  • Quality Metrics
    (e.g. number of deliverables failing quality reviews).
