From the 4th to the 5th of May 2022, the NATO SFA COE joined
in the NATO Lessons Learned Conference organized by the NATO Joint Analysis and
Lessons Learned Centre (JALLC).
The theme of the conference was: “A flashback of two decades
of learning to gain insights for the next five years”.
The event was an opportunity for the participants to consider
the key success stories and shortfalls of LL during the last two decades, highlighting
findings in support of enhancing the development of a more effective LL
Capability across NATO and looking at ways to potentially improve the
Alliance’s organizational learning.
The conference was aimed at discussing challenges,
opportunities, ideas, and potential changes that could lead to improve LL from
Operations in the planning process and how to apply the LL cycle in a timely
manner for tactical issues.
Furthermore, the NATO SFA COE emphasized its strong
commitment to support and contribute to the NATO LL Capability through its SMEs
during the analysis phases of the LL process in the SFA domain.
