SharePoint Lessons Learned Database

A requirement we have had several times from clients is to implement a Lessons Learned Database in SharePoint.

This provides a system where users and key stakeholders can record good and bad experiences throughout the company and hopefully learn from them and embrace a culture of continual improvement.

This sort of application is where SharePoint can shine. We have implemented very simple Lessons Learned applications to very complex ones.

Components would usually include:

  • A source list (example columns – Title, Description, Status, Created By, Raised Date, Category, Responsible User)
  • Workflow to notify responsible person, and possibly approval to accept the lesson
  • Custom Views
  • Custom Permissions
  • Reporting
  • Custom search (often a bespoke
  • Lessons Learned tab in the search centre)
  • Branded landing page
  • Latest lessons learned displayed on intranet homepage

We now offer a simple lessons learned application as a micro job. Alternatively get in touch today to discuss your bespoke requirements
