What's a post-mortem?

"A project post-mortem is a process, usually performed at the conclusion of a project, to determine and analyze elements of the project that were successful or unsuccessful." (Wikipedia)

Post-mortems are an invaluable source of information for project teams. By analyzing variance between estimated effort and actual incurred effort, and by assessing qualitative criteria such as product quality and stakeholder satisfaction, project managers can mitigate future risks and develop iterative best practices.

A post-mortem is generally led by the project manager, but can be led by any member of the project team. Feedback is solicited and then discussed with the intent of establishing consensus on areas of failure and actionable steps that can be taken to prevent similar problems in the future.



Where does Project Slicer fit in?

Project Slicer automates and organizes the project post-mortem process by allowing you to solicit feedback directly from team members and dashboard that data for analysis. Quantitative and qualitative data can be sliced by client, project manager or project type.
