Project Debriefing is a process of studying the project-related experience of the team members via interviews and questionnaires that are aimed at examining certain important aspects like quality of project management, quality of team leadership, effectiveness of HR policies, etc. This technique is utilized in order to collect and evaluate opinions of the team members, and to identify which lessons they have learned. A debriefing process can be more helpful when you include stakeholders as well as all the project team – this will help you to get an all-round vision, including contrasting opinions.
After a series of meetings and individual interviews you may produce administrative conclusions about overall project performance, failures, and successes. The point of a project debriefing effort is to identify what things could have been done differently on the project, and what things have been done correctly yet (as well as how these successes can be developed and transferred into conditions of future projects). Having a project debriefing session after a project is one of the best practices, as it enables the organizations to refine ways in which things are organized.
