Who are the actors of the projects participating in the project reviews?

This is a more surprising result for two reasons. All project actors do not participate. Above all, the managers of project managers and those who are explicitly convened form the ranks of your project reviews. So you target the actors most likely to optimize these meetings that are “expensive” because of the profiles involved. Second point, the function of Project Manager Officer is not always represented. With Project Monitor we arrive at a self-animated device? Or more surely the key function of PMO is provided by the managers of the project managers?

Where to follow your project review?

Participants in project reviews are most often in the same meeting room. When the project teams are not all in the same place, some participants follow their review remotely (conference call) and screen sharing. The collaborative functions and the web mode of the application facilitating this remote mode.

Why do project reviews?
