This year’s edition of the NATO Lessons Learned Conference (NLLC21) was hailed as a great success by those who attended it. As NATO’s key event for the Lessons Learned community and organized by the JALLC on behalf of Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT), this year the event covered the theme: "NATO Lessons Learned in a global crisis: what did we learn and how can we do better?" The NLLC21 exceeded expectations, achieved its objectives and reached a wider audience than ever before in the virtual format developed to meet the COVID-19 pandemic challenges. And now we have great news for those who couldn’t attend the event or who want to refresh their memories of what was presented and discussed.

The JALLC’s Mission is to support Alliance-wide implementation and sustainment of NATO's Lessons Learned policy through monitoring and supervising the NATO Lessons Learned Process within the NATO Command Structure and other NATO bodies. It is the lead agent for the collection and sharing of lessons, accomplished through active content management of the NATO Lessons Learned Portal, Joint Analysis (as an integral part of the Lessons Learned Process) and outreach to allies and partners. The JALLC supports warfare development and warfighting, improving NATO's ability to operate and adapt, through training, advising and assessment activities enabling the establishment and sustainment of effective Lessons Learned capabilities across NATO. 


The JALLC conducts analysis in two key areas of its mission: Joint Analysis of NATO-wide complex issues and Active Content Management of the NATO Lessons Learned Portal. Both types of analysis are undertaken by teams of civilian and military analysts who are able to analyse a wide variety of data, including data collected from the field, through interviews, and document review, as well as from the NATO Lessons Learned Portal, tackling NATO-wide issues to improve and transform the Alliance. You can find out more about the JALLC’s analysis activities here.


The JALLC facilitates Lessons Learned in NATO through its various Lessons Learned activities which include: managing the NATO Lessons Learned Portal, providing assessment and advice on the implementation of the NATO Lessons Learned Capability, analysing the content of the NATO Lessons Learned Portal identifying trends and themes, and providing Lessons Learned. The JALLC’s Lessons Learned activities are key to NATO’s successful implementation of its Lessons Learned Capability which ensures that the Alliance remains a learning organization and contributes to NATO-wide transformation. You can find out more about the JALLC’s Lessons Learned activities here.


The JALLC provides a series of training courses both for internal and external participants. Courses range in focus from training in analysis techniques and project management to basic training in Lessons Learned for Lessons Learned Staff Officers and Points of Contact. All of the JALLC’s training courses are reviewed and revised regularly based on participant feedback to ensure the best possible training experience. You can find out more about the JALLC’s training activities here.


The JALLC’s support to exercises is multi-faceted and underpins all aspects of the JALLC Mission. The JALLC’s Exercise Support team, as well as military and civilian analysts participate in all stages of the NATO Exercise Process, from Exercise Specification and Development, through Planning and Product Development, Operational Conduct to Analysis and Reporting. The JALLC also provides support to operations by facilitating Lessons Learned Training, NATO Lessons Learned Portal Active Content Management, Short Term Analysis and Joint Analysis. These are tasked as required and include support to operations in the form of support to Operational Plans, Key Leader Training and Subject Matter Expert Support for planning conferences. You can find out more about the JALLC’s support exercises and operations here.


The JALLC Advisory Training Team (JATT) was created to provide support in implementing the NATO Lessons Learned Capability to NATO entities, Nations, and partners through the JALLC’s extensive outreach and engagement programme. The JATT helps Lessons Learned staff assess their implementation of the NATO Lessons Learned Capability and provides advice on how to improve it. Additionally, the JATT delivers tailored Lessons Learned training to ensure a consistent and robust NATO Lessons Learned Capability and good Lessons Learned relationships with Member Nations and Partner Nations. You can find out more about the JATT here.


The JALLC provides support to NATO’s Lessons Learned community in many ways including through the NATO Lesson Learned Conference, which covers topical themes and draws participants from across NATO and Partner Nations, as well as other organizations.
