Knowledge Management Advent – Door 10: Retrospect #KMAdvent17

Time taken: 4 hours

What is a Retrospect?

A structured facilitated meeting at the end of a project or major project stage, to capture knowledge before the team disbands.1  Key questions might include:


1.What was the objective of the project?

2.What were the successes?

3.What were the disappointments?

4.Marks out of ten for the project as a whole?

How can LKS deliver a Retrospect and what are the benefits?

LKS can encourage teams to conduct a Retrospect at the end of a project and volunteer to facilitate the process. Retrospects help capture lessons learned, tie up loose ends and ensure the key knowledge from a project has been retained. This could be turned into a Knowledge Asset that the library could share with users.

Knowledge Management goals achieved:

  • Connecting people to best practice
  • Connecting people to the evidence base
  • Sharing learning
