For some of us, the lowly Lessons Learned is one of those ‘have to do’ items in the Project Management artifacts folder. Some of us push it off, forget it, rush it, or minimize it. If used correctly, it becomes the ‘primer’ for your next project. We will see how it will save both time and money. Over time your Lessons Learned will switch from issues to must haves
