Step 5 – Conduct the debriefing workshop

Conduct the workshop with the project team to analyse and agree on key lessons learned.

Despite the potential pitfalls, such debriefing meetings encourage wide participation and provide a most important by-product: By allowing team members to vent, debriefing meetings provide a cathartic, even therapeutic effect. It “clears the air” and gives team members encouragement to start the next project.
