A5 - Have Project Initiation peer-reviewed
A good Project Manager should always have a critical perspective:
Project Manager Hat
Have we done a good job in Project Initiation, and are we ready to move on?
There may be errors or shortcomings that you’re missing for various reasons, including your proximity to the work. It’s a good idea to ask someone with project management expertise from outside the project team to be your peer reviewer and check what you’ve done with a fresh pair of eyes before moving on. Besides helping solve potential problems, peer review is a great way of learning for both sides.
If the organization is not larger than the project team or there’s no one in the organization capable of peer-reviewing the management aspects of the project, you should consider asking an outsider to help you.
The results of the peer review and any related information should be recorded on a card on the Integrated Project Board and closed after the necessary adjustments that were identified during the review have been made.
Besides the Project Manager hat, other hat-wearers may find it useful to have peer reviews as well:
Do we need a production peer review?
Do we need a business peer review?
Do we need someone to peer review the user aspects?
