Title: After Action Review
Abbreviation: AAR
Similar Method: Post-Mortem Analysis
Description: After Action Review (AAR) is a simple process used by teams to capture the Lessons Learned from past successes and failures. The goal is to improve future performance through post-mortem reflection. It is an opportunity for organizations and teams to reflect on a work such as projects, activities, tasks, and events with the intent to identify opportunites for future improvement. AAR can also be employed in the course of a project to learn while doing, as a form of Stop and Reflect before moving on to next work steps.
AARs are intended to be carried out with no intent to blame others. The United States Army used the phrase leave your rank at the door to optimize learning and the use of the AAR process. Some teams document the review results while others prefer to emphasize the no-blame culture by having no written record.
AAR is a form of group reflection where articipants review what was intended against what actually happened, why it happened and what was learned from the experiences. One member of the group facilitates by documenting results and sharing with the group.
