Title Lessons Learned in the Norwegian Defence - Who Learns What, and Why.
Publication Date Apr 2010
Media Count 12p
Personal Author A. C. Hennum B. Eggereide F. Rutledal
Abstract The current Norwegian Defence White paper emphasizes that the Defence is a knowledge organisation and needs to collect and analyse all relevant experiences in a systematic and methodical way. Lessons learned should be realised through amendments to current best practice, and consequences for Defence planning need to be investigated. In the Norwegian Defence there is not a Lessons Learned (LL) unit with capacity to actively collect lessons in a broad manner. This implies that the overall system is based on reports at pre- defined reporting points. These reports are staffed at the appropriate level and are stored in the FERDABALL-database as a central repository. Experiences from support to current operations, shows that the overall Lessons Learned system does not capture all relevant experiences. At the same time tactical units do have their own Lessons learned-process, but these are largely unit- internal and to some extent unit-specific. As a consequence, different units could have different best practices for the same task. When different units rotate into operations, filling the same position, this will on many occasions have a negative impact on performance. At the same time analysis of reports currently stored in the LL-database shows that reported lessons are recurring, thus indicating weak linkages from the Lessons Learned process to the overall Defence planning process.
