Post-Intervention Review

"Project rescues are iterative processes that are intended to support the business and add value to the organization. This phase provides the opportunity to reward the hard work of the extended team, to share learning from past mistakes, and to launch the next phase of the development in a timely fashion."

"The critical skills in this phase include the following:
  • Celebration skills  The team needs to feel good about what they have accomplished.
  • Self-assessment skills  The team needs to understand what went right, what went wrong, and what could be done better.
  • Self-starting skills  The team needs to push forward with the next piece of work.
  • Relinquishing skills  The rescue champion or rescue manager needs to learn how to let go if the project team is capable of proceeding without additional support."

There are 4 sub-phases in this phase:

Communicate Rescue Results
Incorporate Lessons Learned
Update Project Documentation
Realign Project
