2. Establishing a review

A review is a formal way for all the people involved (jargon: 'stakeholders') to consider how the system is performing and to discuss any changes that may be needed.

For example, at the review there should be representatives from management, the user groups, the technical teams and any other interested parties.

Reviews should take place on a regular basis, especially in the early days of the system.

A review may include the following topics

  • Current performance
  • Organisation effects
  • External factors

A review is an excellent way of managing changes well ahead of time rather than having to react to things as they happen.
