When you finish a job, does knowledge gained carry over to future jobs? If mistakes were made on this job, view the cost as tuition; make sure you learn from those mistakes so you don’t pay the cost again. The same applies to problems that arose from causes other than mistakes.
Convene a “lessons learned” session to identify ways to save money on the next project. You don’t need to get the entire crew into a room to do this because people on crews talk to each other. Having a short session in which you can extract this information is relatively painless, versus trying to set up a big, costly meeting in which probably only one or two people will speak up anyhow. Stay focused on money-saving opportunities, such as “We should have had kitting to save time in the field.”
