Debriefing definition

Debriefing meetings provide the team members with the opportunity to give some direct feedback about the project, including an in-depth view of what went well and what did not go well. It is an opportunity for project leadership to probe deeper into project issues and begin getting to the root causes of these issues. Debriefing meetings usually last from one to two hours.

The entire project team should have the opportunity to participate. The more people providing direct verbal feedback to the project leadership, the better. Larger projects may require a series of meetings. At the Debriefing Meeting the team members discuss project issues in a structured format. A facilitator guides the group in probing deeply into a pre-selected list of issues. The meeting allows team members an opportunity to vent and get closure. It is also a good place to capture what went well on the Project.
