Our Mission:  To promote a culture of discussion and improvement by clarifying and understanding what we do well, identifying what needs improvement, recognizing the knowledge of each individual, fostering a broader perspective, and providing the PD&C team members with the opportunity to share and be heard.

Our Process:  Through interviews and individual submittals, this group will gather lessons learned and suggestions from PD&C team members, facilities operations staff, other campus constituents, and outside vendors.  This information is categorized and archived on a spreadsheet that is available to leadership and used to create and implement improvements.

Submit A Lesson

Our Lessons:  Lessons Learned, gathered thus far from interviews with PD&C colleagues and external consultants and contractors about a variety of projects and processes on campus, can be reviewed by three categories: department, topic or project.

Review Lessons Learned

Our History:  Recognizing the wealth of internal experience and knowledge possessed by individuals and teams within PD&C, the department embarked on an effort to capture the lessons learned across our organization.  In 2018, Zac Niehues commenced by hiring a civil engineering graduate student to research Lessons Learned programs in other organizations and businesses.  We borrowed from successful programs and we crafted a program that could be led and maintained by a small committee that would have rotating membership throughout the years.
