Lessons Learned Agenda Template

This month’s freebie is a template for a lessons learned meeting agenda.

What’s This Template For?

A lessons learned meeting is where you review what went well and what didn’t go well on a project.

This template is to help you structure your time in that meeting, so you have the opportunity to talk about the successes and not-so-good parts of what you did.

The agenda template is specifically focused on the topics you should discuss during a lessons learned meeting. I’m a big fan of holding lessons learned meetings after a project and also as you go through a project. Learn what you can, when you can.

Lessons learned meetings (which you will also hear called post-implementation reviews or project post-mortems) are a bit different to other meetings. You’ll need a bespoke agenda for your meeting: the normal agenda that you use when you run a project team meeting won’t be enough.

That’s why I created this free template. It is already pre-populated with the topics you’ll want to talk about during your lessons learned session.

However, you can edit the template as it is a Microsoft Word file, and add in any other agenda topics that you want. So if you aren’t holding a lessons learned meeting but still need an agenda, you can edit this to fit.

How do I access the lessons learned meeting agenda template?

The template is included in my resource library of project management templates. This is a collection of documents for you to use at work for managing your projects.

The files in the resource library are designed for small and medium-sized projects and are quite basic but a good starting point for many of your project management needs. I have a wider selection of professional document templates for project managers in my template shop.

And finally: this template is free for you to use in your work but don’t sell it. That’s the only catch!
