I have learned sooooo much over the past decade that I’ve been managing projects.
So when Terrell asked for sharing lessons learned, I was all over it.
My blog and project management training pretty much are my lessons learned from over the years. ?The great thing about having written this blog for 5 years now is that I can easily search my website to either jog my own memory or provide a resource for someone else who can benefit from my experience. ?Avoiding mistakes by focusing on lessons learned is extremely important. ?I even created a collaborative template for capturing lessons learned in project management for people to adapt and use.
Because I write and teach about the myriad of different aspects involved with project management, there is a lot of diversity in my lessons learned resources.
Trust me, even though it may seem like I’ve got it all figured out, I have personally screwed up each and every aspect of managing teams and projects at least once.
Here are a few specific ones I’ve written or done training for.
- Project Management Plan
- Agile and Batch Sizes
- Effective Meetings
- Coordinating Multiple Project Teams
- Agile User Stories and Waterfall
- The Power of Focus on Projects
- Continuous Integration & Testing
- Landing a job and gaining experience
