This morning I was asked to provide a PM with what I would look for in a project or program review so the PM can make sure they’re ahead of the curve. I thought it was a really smart question and immediately pulled my brain into gear and produced this straightforward, straight talking template.

I do lots of reviews across industries, cultures, countries, domains etc and I always start with these docs and questions.

Thought you might like them…they are of course not definitive, but I’’ve never seen a project or program where there are good/reasonable answers to these and it’s also off the rails. I have however, seen plenty off the rails when the PM was answering questions that didn’t really help – like “what colour is your project”?

Hope it helps, feel free to share it… and smile … you know I’m always thinking about projects and programs.
