MEMORANDUM

TO: Project Sponsor and Stakeholders

FROM: Project Manager

SUBJECT: Training Postmortem Review

OBJECTIVE
This memo details the benefits and drawbacks of a postmortem review of this training project. Additionally it will include who should partake in the postmortem review meeting, and in conclusion what the team hope’s to discover upon conclusion of this review.

BENEFITS OF A POSTMORTEM REVIEW
The benefits of this review are to list the goals versus outcome of the project, the budget against the final costs, and stakeholder participation. It is also helpful to document what went well and what did not go well during this project. Areas to review are morale, communications, and cost components such as hardware, software, office space, people, time, and budget. This should also include project scope, requirements, conflict management, and deadlines.

DRAWBACKS OF A POST MORTEM REVIEW

THE MEETING
There will be a meeting the day after training ends on February 14, 2000 at 800 am at the Holiday Inn media room for the sponsor, project manager, and trainers to discuss the lessons learned and to prepare the postmortem report. Stakeholders will take notes during the project to ensure there is valuable feedback prepared bout how things went, the milestones, what went well and what could be improved upon for the final meeting.
