A joint AFAC and AIDR event

2019 Lessons Management Forum


30-31 July 2019



Are we learning?

The 2019 Lessons Management Forum will again bring together lessons management practitioners, those interested in this area, and those new to the area to share good practice, learnings and innovations. Presentations will cover lessons that have been identified as well as how to manage lessons.

There will be a broad range of presentations and workshops from various organisations, jurisdictions and sectors.

The Forum is open to everyone and will provide face-to-face networking opportunities to enhance the expanding community of practitioners working in the lessons management area, and new members are encouraged to join.

“To achieve real and lasting change, we must learn from our success, using the personal narrative of stories and knowledge-sharing between our people to truly embed learning and improvement.”
