Want to get it right from the start? Learn how to successfully mitigate risks in your current and future projects through open communication between stakeholders and get the results you need. The success of your next project can impact your budget, reputation, and career. Incorporating a before-action review, and after-action review, can make all the difference in improving performance and driving productivity. The "Before-Action Review" builds communication amongst stakeholders and helps you assess project risks, analyze potential impact, and develop countermeasures to get ahead of any impediments to your success. The "After-Action Review" helps you and your team be more successful from one project to the next by creating a dialogue around what worked and what to change in the future. This set of tools includes: (1) A manual to explain concepts and guide you, the leader, through the process, (2) two worksheets for conducting the activities and documenting what you've learned, (3) sample emails to help you effectively communicate this process and gain buy-in with your team.
