Let us consider a project as a journey. For any journey you need to decide about lot of things in advance and during the journey. Time to time these decisions need to be looked into even if the journey has started to ensure that even if those have been taken, are they leading you to right direction and desired destination. And one more advantage of reviewing them on a regular basis is to take an appropriate measure in case some wrong decision is noticed or even if right decision has drawn out undesired results. An immediate course of corrective actions is something that can reassure your project leading to right direction and desired results.
