After-Action Report – A Tool for Evolving Product Strategy

Product Template After-Action Report by Heap

At Heap we believe that it’s important to keep reiterating the “why” for any initiative — what problem are we aiming to solve? Why is that problem important? Whom are we solving that problem for?

So, we’ve put together three worksheets to help you implement a repeatable process for getting to the why.

The Problem Brief is used to help your teams get clear on the problem you’re trying to solve. The Design Brief is used for rallying around a solution. And The After-Action Report is used to determine if that solution was the right solution.

The goal of an After-Action Report is to evolve your product strategy by figuring out what works, what doesn’t, and how to make it better.
