Lessons Learned Template Purpose and Objectives:

Lessons are learned throughout each project life cycle and opportunities for improvement are discovered by completing this template. As part of a continuous improvement process, documenting lessons learned will help the project team discover the root cause of problems that occurred and avoid the same problems in future project stages or future new projects. The data that was used for this report was gathered by using Project Lessons Learned Record Sheets and they are summarized in the table below. The objective of this report is to gather all relevant information for better planning of future projects along with later project stages and preventing or minimizing risks for future projects.
