I see peer reviews done on both the products of the project (e.g. training materials, customer-consumable deliverables) as well as the by-products of the project (e.g. requirements documentation, code).

If it is done after the initial creation of the information, it's a QC activity. If it's done while the creation is happening, it is better as there's less rework involved - any type of non-solo work (e.g. pairs programming) would be an example of this.

Kiron,

Is there any review of the project management?
We do have formal peer reviews and audits on the project deliverables. These are periodic - primarily before the delivery of a milestone. Almost exclusively during execution. Mostly it is done internally by members of the larger team (who do not have a stake in the project being reviewed).

It is periodic since the project has multiple points-of-no-return (to execute the project successfully without piling on additional effort) and is an important method to manage quality.

Absolutely - when I was working for TD, there were multiple levels of peer review on specific PM artifacts based on the level of complexity of the project, and standard governance practices within our segments required their PMOs to play a QA role on all key documents.

For the very biggest projects & programs (those over $10MM), the EPMO would also play a similar role where a seasoned BA, QA lead, or PM would review the appropriate key artifacts from the project as part of a gating process.

Kiron,

Make sense, could there be more then one
In my project we do peer reviews in the beginning of a project, and this will help the project team focus on the right tasks. The reviewer will be someone stakeholders respects, so they can influence the senior team to make changes if they are necessary.

Anish,

Interesting, are they repeated to validate the change did take place on key project.

The peer review team is chosen by stakeholders, internal or external?
We use peer review as an activity inside our defined quality process. We do that after each governance phase.

It's an internal review team, and they are repeated to validate the changes on key projects.
