One of my good friends in Singapore is Lt Col Karuna Ramanathan who is Deputy Head of the Center for Leadership Development in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).

I met up with him during my recent trip and we had lunch together. I knew he had been doing a lot of work with AARs but did not realise that the SAF had slightly modified the After Action Review (AAR) process.

He spoke about this at KM World and Robert Swanwick blogged about it in an article entitled 2-5-1 Storytelling. Take a look! The key difference is the bit about relationships and the final item "what was the most important takeaway from the event?" I rather like the changes and think I will adopt them myself when ever I facilitate an AAR in the future.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
