The Joint Analysis and Lessons Learned Centre (JALLC)[1] is a NATO body located in Monsanto (Lisbon), Portugal.

Locations of NATO's two strategic commands—Allied Command Transformation (ACT; yellow marks) and Allied Command Operations (ACO; red marks)—the latter of which has Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) as its headquarters. The subordinate centres of ACT and subordinate commands and joint force commands of ACO are also shown.

The Joint Analysis and Lessons Learned Centre was commissioned on 2 September 2002. Its mission is to serve as NATO's centre for performing joint analysis of operations, training, exercises and experimentation, including establishing and maintaining an interactive managed NATO Lessons Learned Database.[2] The JALLC is also responsible for producing the NATO Joint Analysis Handbook[3] and the NATO Lessons Learned Handbook,[4] for hosting the NATO Lessons Learned Conference[5] and for organizing the NATO Lessons Learned Staff Officers Course at SWEDINT.[6]

In 2010, the JALLC established the JALLC Advisory and Training Team[7] to assist NATO, NATO/partner nations/organizations to develop or improve their lesson learning and information sharing capability for the mutual benefit of the Alliance. Also, the NATO Lessons Learned Portal[8] was launched to complement the NATO Lessons Learned Database with an area further enabling sharing of lessons learned information.

The JALLC, as a member of Supreme Allied Command Transformation (ACT), feeds the results of joint analysis work and lessons learned back into the transformation network. JALLC is one of three joint organisations in the ACT structure, the others being the Joint Warfare Centre (JWC) (Stavanger) and Joint Force Training Centre.

The Joint Analysis and Lessons Learned Centre shares a site with the Portuguese Air Force Operational Command (Comando Operacional da Força Aérea).

The NATO Military Command Structure consists of two strategic commands and is directed by the North Atlantic Council, all of which are liaised by a common Secretary-General:[9]

The commands under SACEUR - Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum, Allied Joint Force Command Naples and Joint Force Command Norfolk are Operational Level Commands, while Headquarters Allied Air Command, Headquarters Allied Maritime Command and Headquarters Allied Land Command are Tactical Level Commands.[10] SACEUR also has operational command of the Joint Support and Enabling Command.[11]
