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

Knowledge Management Advent – Door 9: Peer Assist #KMAdvent17

Time taken: ½ day

What is a Peer Assist?

Peer Assists are structured, facilitated meetings between different teams.1 Roughly a Peer Assist is split into 4 parts:

 

1.Home team/ team 1 present context

2.Visitors/ team 2 ask questions and give feedback

3.Home team/ team 1 analyse and reflect

4.Visitors/ team 2 present feedback and agree actions

How can LKS support After Action Reviews and what are the benefits?

LKS can use their extensive knowledge of their organisation to connect teams that can help one another. They can take a facilitative role in organising and delivering the Peer Assist and supporting both teams. Peer Assists give the ‘outside perspective’ that can be refreshing and vital – they can also help develop networks. They’re relatively straightforward and inexpensive but take a bit longer to deliver than some of the other tools.

Knowledge Management goals achieved:

  • Connecting people to people
  • Sharing learning
  • Collegiate working

Time taken: 15 minutes

What is an After Action Review?

A short structured meeting held immediately after a short term activity such as a task within a project.1 After the Review lessons learned can be captured and shared.

 

Questions you might ask include:

  • What was supposed to happen?
  • What actually happened?
  • Why was there a difference?
  • What can we learn from this?

How can LKS support After Action Reviews and what are the benefits?

LKS can take on a facilitative role in supporting After Action Reviews talking teams through the process and helping them engage with the questions. They can also help teams capture and share the knowledge appropriately. This way knowledge is stored and retained for future use and for the corporate memory of an organisation.

Knowledge Management goals achieved:

  • Sharing learning
