Storyboard Text

  • Project Kick-off
  • Ok there is a new project, it's going to be great
  • Mid Project
  • We have to same problems and arguments every time, why do we never learn?
  • End of the Project
  • We've reached the end of the project I just give up. we had the same old problems
  • Post Project
  • I guess I'll just tick off the lessons learned, no one cares anyway. Everyone has moved on to the next project
  • We met our hero, The Project Manager, having a kick-off meeting with the stakeholders, everyone is feeling pretty confident
  • Project Kick-off
  • Project Kickoff
  • This time I'm going to try something different for the project, a Pre-Mortem Workshop
  • Midway through the project, the problems arise and no one wants to work through solutions so arguments and the not my problem attitudes start.
  • Mid Project
  • Mid Project
  • So we have a problem, that's Ok, we worked through this in the Pre-Mortem, we have a plan
  • The project ends, the problems were the same and no one wants to talk about it. 
  • End of the Project
  • Yippee the project went well, we recovered from the problems with our working relationship intact
  • Project End
  • The Project Manager just doesn't have the energy to close the loop with a lessons learned workshop. 
  • Post Project
  • Post Project
  • That Pre-Mortem really worked maybe a Post Mortem Workshop will be just as helpful
  • We met our hero, the Project Manager, having enlisted the help of a facilitator to run a Pre-Mortem workshop to look at the negative and positive outcomes of the project while the stakeholders are still confident of the projects success
  • Hi, we are going to work through all the barriers to the success of the project and what success looks like
  • Project Kickoff
  • Stakeholders bring problems to the Project Manager, since the problems were identified in the Pre-Mortem workshop, there are solutions that all the stakeholders have agreed to.
  • Mid Project
  • The project ends and everyone is happy to celebrate. Problems were solved and the outcome was successful.
  • Project End
  • The Project Manager wants to close the loop but decides to engage an independent facilitator to do a Post Mortem workshop as the best way to ensure a worthwhile Project Review.
  • Post Project
  • Hi again, we are going to look at the barriers we overcame and how we acheived project success
