“We only debrief on a project if something went wrong on the project or with a client.”
Wouldn’t it be better to prevent this?
Here’s an easy way that every agency should use…
If you run a debrief at the end of a project, it’s already too late to change the outcome. And any learning is often forgotten by the time the next project begins or may not apply.
Instead, run a brief retrospective discussion after every milestone, or better yet, every two weeks.
Reflect and discuss:
- What is going well?
- What can we improve?
- What will we change starting today?
With this approach, you’re making incremental adjustments to how you work.
Since not much can go wrong in two weeks, these discussions can be short, and adjustments tend to be small.
And it’s easier to keep teams aligned with the creative strategy and client priorities.
This lightweight, low-effort change will have a significant impact on your business.
Give it a try and start improving your agency’s profitability, work quality, employee morale, and client satisfaction.
