In this session, participants learned the steps to create their own framework for conducting after action reviews following an incident or exercise. Working in a small group with facilitator assistance, participants learned how to conduct after action debriefs, identify and organize observations as well as recommendations for improvement. At the end of the day, participants had the start of an after action review process which can be used to continue work on to deliver their organization.
