Whew….you’ve done it. You and your team just completed a major project and are celebrating! The group did a good job making adjustments and dealing with all of the curve balls thrown their way during the process, and they successfully delivered on the project. It was quite an accomplishment and the team worked really hard to deliver on it. The celebration is well deserved, so how do you follow up on it? You learn from it! There is something to learn from every project, whether a success or a failure, so you’ll perform better on your next project. The best way to do this is with a retrospective meeting. You may have heard of this type of meeting called a post-mortem meeting, but I like to call it a retrospective meeting as the project doesn’t need to figuratively die in order for you to learn from it!
