Conducting an after action review (AAR) is a critical final step in legal project management, and is also useful regardless of whether the LPM process was in place. In the short-term, responding constructively to the findings of an AAR should lead to greater efficiency, cost-effectiveness, responsiveness, professional development, managerial skills and knowledge. In the long run, the continuous improvement from acting on the findings of AARs increases the value of the law department as a result of clearer scoping of work, better understanding of stakeholders, greater accountability for costs and results, and continuous improvement in how work is done, whether by internal resources, outside firms or a combination.
