Agile Lesson Learnt Service for Project Teams

15 February 2013

Action-Fraction is looking to help manufacturers make significant improvements to how they manage capital investment projects with the offer of a limited number of free lessons learnt workshops during the early part of 2013.

We have launched these workshops in light of the current economic challenges, which is bringing renewed pressure on manufacturers to boost efficiencies and drive costs down. The demand for manufacturers to perfect their processes and ensure valuable lessons are learnt and captured for future commercial and infrastructure projects has never been higher. “Ensuring that projects are completed on time and to budget can have huge company wide implications, so capturing lessons and learning from them consistently is an excellent way to improve business performance”, explains Catherine Wheatcroft, Lead Facilitator and Founder.

The workshops are being offered as a free ‘taster’ service to manufacturers and aim to work with project teams to review a current project and understand the successes and lessons to be learnt from it. The workshop is run by a trained facilitator and will cover areas such as improvement identification, issue impact and ranking, five whys of root cause, smart actions and impact on the business.

A lesson learnt project review relates to the knowledge that is gained from a project, which business outputs or results differed from the expected results. Taking part in one of the free workshops on offer will provide manufacturers with innovative tangible best practice methods to improve future projects.

Action-Fraction is looking to work with manufacturers who want to ensure that costly mistakes are not repeated, make significant improvements to roll out timescales, keep projects within budget, introduce measures to ensure that production is not adversely affected by business changes and increase the effectiveness of project teams and resources.  

By offering manufacturers a free workshop, the company aim to provide manufacturers with benefits that can be documented as a case study. This in turn will help to develop the service in the manufacturing sector and create awareness of the benefits of learning project lessons and contribution they make in best practice.
