The NATO Lessons Learned Portal is the Alliance’s centralized hub for all things related to Lessons learned. It is managed and maintained by the JALLC, acting as NATO's leading agent for Lessons Learned.
Observations and Best Practices that may lead to Lessons to be Learned can be submitted to the Portal, and the JALLC will ensure that these Observations find their way through the NATO Lessons Learned Process.
The information shared on the NATO Lessons Learned Portal can help saving lives.
The little piece of information you have, may be the fragment missing to understand the bigger problem/solution – make sure you share it.
The Bi-SC NATO Lessons Learned Conference 2018 (NLLC 18), hosted by the Joint Analysis and Lessons Learned Centre (JALLC), will be held on 20 – 22 March 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.
The aim of the 2018 conference is to discuss and recommend ways and means to improve the interoperability of Lessons within the Alliance and to assess the impact that the NATO Lessons Learned Optimization Action Plan has had on the NATO Lesson Learned capability. Accordingly, this year’s conference will cover two themes:
Interoperability and Information Exchange of Lessons within NATO and with Partners, including IOs, GOs, and NGOs; and
NATO Lessons Learned Optimization Action Plan assessment and adaption.
The conference will be a practical event. After initial input from key speakers, the themes will be addressed through work in syndicates. Each syndicate will be led by one of the key speakers, supported by JALLC Subject Matter Experts, and will aim to deliver concrete recommendations. These will be combined into a final statement, to be presented and debated during a plenary session on the last day. The statement will form the basis for further research to be conducted by the JALLC, resulting in a final report with conclusions and recommendations.
Additional details can be found in the Calling Letter, issued by the JALLC on 6 December 2017, and in the NATO Lessons Learned Portal as planning progresses.
On 6 December 2017, the JALLC received the visit of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Resources and Management of the Supreme Allied Command Transformation—Major General Grzegorz Sodolski (Polish Army). The aim of the visit was for the General to gain situation awareness of the JALLC's adaptation to its new role as NATO's Leading Agent for Lessons Learned.
Major General Sodolski had an office call meeting with the Commander and the Chief of Staff, debating the resources needed for the JALLC to fulfil its six main tasks: the management of the NATO Lessons Learned Portal; analysis projects; Lessons Learned outreach; Lessons Learned training; support to exercises; and the NATO Lessons Learned Conference.
After the office call, Major General Sodolski addressed the JALLC staff members, expressing his appreciation for the Centre’s good work and his vision for the “bright future of the JALLC”.
