Project Plan without a regular review is as good as a rail on the track without an engine. Hence though the rail is on the track but is not moving since there is no driving or moving force to it. Similarly howsoever structured or strong project plan is built, if there is no review to monitor the plan and assess if going in right direction and with right pace; it will be of no use. Review enables you to take proactive actions in response to some risks perceived during discussion about project plan tasks and their current status.

Risks don’t come in a planned manner. All of a sudden a risk may arise during a smooth going project. Teams and even the team members belonging to the same team do not sit together in today’s high speed life and professional requirements. Focus of any business is more on outcome and results rather than forcing old time discipline to be adhered to. Team members may work from anywhere working on the same module of a project during its development. A very structured task allocation, planning and its review would be required to manage this kind or for that sake any kind of development environment.

It is important to take help of technology to keep assessment and review abreast of any kind of lacunae. Review of particular tasks in a project plan allocated to a particular team member may not require whole team to assemble together. It may be a one to one kind. The whole purpose is to keep things get going… in right direction… with right pace…
