Project Post Mortem
A project post-mortem meeting is a gathering that happens at the end of a project where the team examines the challenges and successes of the endeavor. There are a few ways to run this meeting, but the primary goal of any project post-mortem is to find better ways to work together.
Many teams are aware of post-mortem meetings and understand the value, but often do not spend the time needed to conduct them. Excuses for skipping project post-mortem meetings range from being too busy, not having the budget, and even not understanding how to run a meeting properly.
At the heart of all of this is the organization. You must have support to conduct a project post-mortem. And companies need to make an investment in improving processes and efficiency. So talk to your leadership about these benefits of project post-mortem meetings.
Baselines enable you to capture a quick snapshot of a project at any given point in time. We recommend setting a baseline at project launch so you have a clear record of where your plan started and can track changes against that benchmark.
Baselines are a great tool for finding points of project discussion in your post-mortem meeting. Look for tasks that fell behind or beat deadlines so you can break down the whys with your team and learn from your own project history.
Before you jump in, it is very important to remember these meetings are meant to discuss issues openly without creating a negative working environment. There is a fine line between discussing issues and complaining about them.
In order to make any progress, you need to talk freely and openly about how you can improve your process and, as a result, your work. To ensure this happens, set and discuss some basic ground rules for your project’s post-mortem meeting.
A well-practiced project post-mortem or retrospective process can help any organization. Of course, there are lots of ways to run a post-mortem meeting, so feel free to adapt the ideas here to create a process that works for your team.
