A critical portion of project management is examining the successes and challenges of a project after the project has completed. In this project, we will create a Lessons Learned Report that will help the project manager and the project team review their efficiencies and effectiveness. This Lessons Learned Report will be created in Google Docs. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.


At least 2 years business experience + at least 1 year project based work.
