It is not uncommon at the completion of a project to look back and reflect on how the project progressed. This is called an End-of-Project Review Meeting. For projects that were challenged or unsuccessful, these meetings are sometimes called postmortems. When the team discusses the reason for problems, a common theme seems to dominate—a general lack of definition and planning. A common lament is, “We should have spent more time planning.” Of course planning is a big topic. It means you should have spent more time understanding the nature of the work, expectations, deliverables, scope, estimates, risks, etc.
