An After-Action Review (AAR) is an assessment conducted after a project or major activity that allows team members and leaders to discover (learn) what happened and why, reassess direction, and review both successes and challenges. The AAR does not have to be performed at the end of a project or activity; it can be performed after each identifiable event within a project or major activity, thus becoming a live learning process (the learning organization).
