The seasonal nature of the construction industry has historically been a challenge, but it can also be an asset in terms of set-aside time to review, plan, and strategize for the upcoming season. Debriefing at the end of a season is a building process that allows time to look at leveraging strengths and honing in on areas of improvement. In this fast-paced retail construction environment it is critical to always stay ahead of the curve. Debriefing allows you to do so by identifying the root causes of successes and failures and using the knowledge gained to continually improve the performance of each individual and the entire team. As the saying goes, hindsight is 20/20, so when looking back at a completed project from the year, one can use debriefing as a powerful tool to structure the process and capitalize on meaningful learning.
