Peer Review Inspection Agenda


PRI (Peer Review Inspection) is a method of quality inspection. It is a structured, in-depth examination of all or part of an “artifact” (work product), such as purpose, contents, presentation, construction, and performance, for the purpose of identifying defects (errors and deviations from specification, convention, or standard).

PRIs are intended to discover (and indirectly prevent future) defects, lower costs, simplify, and improve performance and safety. The tangible results of a PRI are the identification of defects in workmanship; identification of deviations from specification, standard, or convention; a report; and a plan for the correction of defects. PRIs are performed by a team.

The benefits of detecting defects early is to reduce the need for later detection and rework, and to prevent their leakage into subsequent activities. Consequential benefits of PRIs include reducing development cycle time and lower costs. PRIs provide the most impact when conducted early in the work product life cycle.


Annotated agendas are intended for use by the facilitator and can extend up to twenty pages and larger.  They provide a play script of the context that needs to managed, typically in a partial day, full day, or multiple day workshop environment.  They stipulate in great detail the Purpose of each agenda step, the Questions to be addressed during each step, and the need place for multi-media support including movie files, PowerPoint slides, and large Post-It notes.  Each agenda step provides an estimated timeframe, summary statements, and additional notes.  MOST IMPORTANTLY each agenda step comes with a highly detailed method—HOW TO facilitate the deliverable with an emphasis on the analysis tool and HOW TO take lists and converge them into documents and consensually agreed upon findings, outputs, and actions.
