Benefits of AAR

The research is clear and compelling. Individual and team performance can be improved by 25% by using After Action Reviews. Regular practice of iTS AAR delivers the reward of small and large improvements which in turn encourages more iTS AAR activity and a shift in mindset so that problems become opportunities for learning rather than burdens.


Benefit 1 – All are united by a shared and highly effective approach to learning

In many workplaces, enormous amounts of energy are spent avoiding issues that are judged too hot to handle, getting work-arounds and building bridges over the difficulties rather than addressing them. iTS AAR not only provides a framework through which all the trickiest topics can be understood and managed into solutions, it also changes the negative energy of avoidance and anxiety into positive energy, engagement and innovation.

iTS AAR helps you to create the ideal organisational learning environment, where all are united by a shared approach to learning and where knowledge is articulated and put to good use.


Benefit 2 – When people learn well, they work well

By providing a framework for having honest conversations without personal blame that encourage increased accountability, regular use of AAR teams to interact in a more open way, where learning is the aim, rather than avoidance and blame.  The transformational impact on the whole team and organisational culture creates healthy attitudes to work, problem solving and collaboration.


Benefit 3 – advance team performance

​It’s often said that people are an organisations’ best asset but, in reality, it’s the relationship between people that makes all the difference to how an organisation or team performs.

“Work imagined” is never the same as “work done” and performance is advanced when there is psychological safety for people to learn together, take risks, be heard and to innovate.

It is the synergy of the team that will deliver the all-important improvements in patient safety or drive the competitive advantage because the whole of the team is greater than the sum of the parts.

Todays’ organisations will advance by capitalising on the deep and broad learning, effective problem solving and impressive team performance that iTS AAR facilitates.
