We’ve all done it… failed to learn from our experience (good or bad) and use that education to our benefit in the future.
One example of this would be the application of Work Packages or Task Lists to recurring, planned work. All too often, we “reinvent the wheel” each and every time a known (think PM) job comes up on the Schedules horizon.
Every effort should be made to have and maintain effective Job Templates, Work Packages, or Task Lists. These “blueprints” should include every possible tool, time and team members required to complete the job safely to specification.
