Review is a well-defined and formal method for ensuring that a work product meets team or organizational expectations, and to ensure that defects are identified and corrected as early as possible. Review is an opportunity to “fail fast.” Unlike a Gemba Walk, which is to “go and see,” a review is to “ask, record, and provide feedback.” Reviews are useful to gather a broad set of perspectives, develop knowledge of less-experienced team members, and to standardize improvements across teams and the organization. Reviews can be informal observations, or can use formal checklists and process baselines, but should always generate data that can be used to share learning and prevent the recurrence of common problems.
