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. 


In terms of the JALLC’s analysis activities, the JALLC conducts three types of analysis in support of its mission: Joint Analysis of NATO-wide complex issues, Short Term Analysis of issues with strategic implications that require a swift response, and NATO Lessons Learned Portal Content Analysis of Lessons Learned information and trends on the NLLP. Each type of analysis is conducted by civilian and military subject matter experts as appropriate who, besides their own education and experience, undergo the JALLC Analyst Training Course when they join the JALLC to ensure a seamless service across the JALLC’s analysis activities.

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.

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.
