Your own list of reflection points may vary slightly based on your industry, team makeup, and project needs. However, at a bare minimum you should address the following reflection points post project.

  1. Objective vs. Outcome
    Objective versus outcome is a great place to start your post-project reflection. Look back on what you set out to accomplish and discuss whether or not the finished project met those goals.

  2. Scope vs. Reality
    Scope creep — wherein additional elements are added beyond the initial agreed-upon brief — happens far too often. It’s a giant motivation killer for your team members, who feel like they’re constantly chasing a changing horizon.

  3. Tracked Time
    Project management software is an excellent tool for tracking time on whole projects, project components, and individual team members’ time contributions. Post-project reflection on tracked time is crucial to better understanding your employees and your business.

  4. Client Satisfaction
    Hopefully you’re including a step for client feedback (whether that client is an external organization or an internal team) in your project management process. You should, of course, be looking at ROI and whether or not what you produced is having the desired impact.

  5. Team Satisfaction
    Your clients are an asset and their satisfaction matters. But it could be argued that an even more valuable asset is your team — keeping your top talent satisfied is crucial to their productivity and retention. Post-project reflections should include the opportunity for team members to weigh in on what did and did not go well.
