Documenting Implementation and Lessons Learnt

Patricia Rogers's picture 16th March 2012 by Patricia Rogers

An After Action Review is a simple, flexible, and collaborative option for assessing strengths and weaknesses after implementing a project, program or event. After Action Reviews give people who have been involved the time, space and structure to reflect and share lessons learnt to support ongoing organisational learning.

It can be used once or on a regular basis as part of ongoing monitoring and evaluation. The example provided describes how an After Action Review was valuable in supporting an ongoing collaboration between agencies.
