Lessons Learned Review is a structured approach to the project post-mortem process. Most companies rely on project managers and templates to help guide the process. However, as most project managers perform the Lessons Learned Review for his/her projects only, the process outcome tends to be inconsistent. National Instruments introduced a new structured Visual Lessons Learned (VLL) process to help R&D project teams evaluate project challenges and areas for improvement. This process focuses on communication mapping and project timeline to help tease out lessons learned that can then be distilled into organizational process improvement initiatives and best practices. VLL has led to a more effective and efficient postmortem process by identifying common issues impacting multiple projects teams and enabling improvements to the product development process. This has subsequently contributed to greater than 90% of projects being able to meet delivery date.
