Preparation for Project Post-Mortem Review

Before I am going away for my well-deserved 1.5 week’s vacation, I had an performance/objectives assessments for Year 2009 with my Manager.  One of the objective is to prepare a post-mortem review for the recent project that went live early this month.

To think about the template and contents to cover for this review, this is like a session on the lessons learnt from the teams’ experiences, what we have done right and share with others, what we have done wrong and how we should improve from it.  In most projects’ post-mortem reviews, most people do not like to bring the things that they had done badly partly due to the no one is ready to accept the facts.  The typical topics are usually on improper scope control management,  mis-communications on the project team members’ roles and responsibilities, improper risk management and escalations process for stakeholder’s decision-makings.

This is what I have in mind for the post-mortem report:

  1. Project Summary
  2. What we have done right and how to improve further
  3. What we have done wrong and how to improve further
  4. Outstanding Issues to review for project closure
  5. Action Plans for moving forward
