    This week The PMO Podcast™ Featured Story presents, "Punctuate PM with a Post-Closing Continuous Improvement Process," presented by Mark Perry (about Mark), host of The PMO Podcast™. If you are a project management professional, then you of course know all about the project management knowledge areas. But just how do you apply all of that knowledge? Take lessons learned for example. Did you know that “lessons learned” comes up in the current version of the PMBOK® twenty-five times. And, lessons learned knowledge base comes up nine times. That’s thirty-four references to lessons learned. Now, that sounds great. But, at the end of the day, the real question is, “Is the opportunity for improvement handled effectively?” The answer, for many organizations, is no and that is where a post-closing continuous improvement process step can be of great value.

    The PMO Podcast™ Points Memo suggests, “There's power in lessons learned." I know of a man, and you know this man too, who despite his weight problem became a successful model and actor. Today, Richard Simmons is recognized all over the world for his weight loss crusade and has become a very successful, famous, and happy man. But he could not have achieved all that he did had he not learned from the things that didn’t work and the mistakes that nearly killed him.

    The PMO Podcast™ Mailbag provides the second in a series of ten tips for setting up a PMO.
