A postmortem (or post-mortem) is a process intended to help you learn from past incidents. It typically involves an analysis or discussion soon after an event has taken place.

“Whatever you do, you will make mistakes, errors and blunders. Everyone does. Some less, some more, but no one is exempt. Yet, success is nothing more than mistakes you managed to overcome. That is why a mistake is not important. What counts are the things you do after one.”

TIP: If you want to know more about the concept of postmortems and its purpose and usage, please refer to a blog post I wrote some time ago. I’m pretty sure that will help even more.
