The quality criteria for major pieces of work should
have been defined when you were doing your project planning.
The work you produce should be independently checked
wherever possible to sure it will meet the quality
You can arrange for someone to check one aspect of a
piece of work or the whole Deliverable.
Make sure those involved in the review have specialist
knowledge or experience to offer, or have a vested
interest (e.g. a stakeholder).
For example – a quality review can be as simple as
circulating a draft paper or report and asking for
comments before finalising it. When you ask people to
review papers for you:
Always give the reviewer time to look at the work
Meeting to 'walk through' the comments with
reviewers would be useful. This avoids ambiguity
and focuses on constructive comments
It also helps spread ownership and gain commitment,
therefore involving people who will have a vested
interest in the outcome of the project would be a
good move (e.g. stakeholder(s) – such as the end
user of the product or report you are designing).
Remember to arrange for reviewers to plan the time to
carry out a review.
the deliverable does not meet the required standard you
will need to decide whether you can live with its
shortcomings, or whether you need to take remedial
action. You will also need to consider what impact this
would have to the project and any other areas.
