Lessons Learned Best Practices Case Studies

Lessons Learned, Best Practices, and Case Studies 

Lessons learned and case studies generally describe areas of risk, pitfalls encountered in programs, and strategies employed to mitigate or fix problems when they arise. Best practices are proven techniques and strategies that can avoid common problems and improve quality, cost, or both. Most programs represent a new combination of existing capabilities or the insertion of incremental advances in technology.  By reviewing the successes, failures, problems, and solutions of similar programs, Program Managers and Systems Engineers can gain insights into risks, uncertainties, and opportunities that their programs may encounter. For additional information on lessons learned, best practices, and case studies see the Systems Engineering Guidebook, Section 2.2.8 Lessons Learned, Best Practices, and Case Studies. This sub-topical area contains information on lessons learned, best practices, and case studies relevant to DoD acquisition.
