Quotable Quote


 The thing I hate about an argument is that it always interrupts a discussion.

What's wrong with Post Implementation Reviews?

Learn from the past to create a better future.  That can't be wrong - so why do PIRs fail?

  • Fear factor - I'm going to get blamed - so hide the truth;
  • Looking bad - our department must come out looking good - hide the truth;
  • Create a huge report - with minute detail and a couple of red herrings - hide the truth.

 An Action Meetings PIR is different because:

  • It focusses on the key issues:
  • It is conducted in a safe environment;
  • It is not a 'blame game' - we're looking forwards not backwards;
  • It produces a succinct report with a manageable number of specific recommendations.

The Benefits 

  • Satisfied stakeholders;
  • commitment to action;
  • closure;
  • transparency.

When should you use an Action Meetings PIR?


  • You want a clear, concise report free from manipulation;
  • Impartiality is important;
  • The project has endured a number of difficult issues;
  • You want a significant jump in the capabilty of future projects.

And please remember our guarantee - if you are not happy you don't pay
