Knowledge Management Advent – Door 7: Lessons learned and good practice #KMAdvent17

Time taken: Anywhere, anytime

What are Lessons Learned?

After a project, new intervention or big piece of work it is vital that the learning (both successes and challenges) be captured, stored and made findable for others so the same mistakes aren’t repeated and the good outcomes replicated.

How can LKS create share Lessons Learned and what are the benefits?

Lessons Learned and good practice stories take many forms whether it be a bulletin, case studies or a database. Depending upon the time/ resource you have your input can vary from signposting to existing good practice repositories such as eWIN and NHS Fab Stuff, to creating lessons learned bulletins or managing an organisational database of good practice. Encouraging the sharing of lessons learned helps avoid the same mistakes being made and reminds staff to consult the evidence base – good practice stories also showcase the great work within an organisation.
