**

  • Informal Review

**

o No formal process o May take the form of pair programming or a technical lead reviewing designs and code o Results may be documented o Varies in usefulness depending on the reviewers o Main purpose: inexpensive way to get some benefit

**

  • Walkthrough

**

o Meeting led by author o May take the form of scenarios, dry runs, peer group participation o Open-ended sessions Optional pre-meeting preparation of reviewers Optional preparation of a review report including list of findings o Optional scribe (who is not the author) o May vary in practice from quite informal to very formal o Main purposes: learning, gaining understanding, finding defects

**

  • Technical Review

**

o Documented, defined defect-detection process that includes peers and technical experts with optional management participation o May be performed as a peer review without management participation o Ideally led by trained moderator (not the author) o Pre-meeting preparation by reviewers o Optional use of checklists o Preparation of a review report which includes the list of findings, the verdict whether the software product meets its requirements and, where appropriate, recommendations related to findings o May vary in practice from quite informal to very formal o Main purposes: discussing, making decisions, evaluating alternatives, finding defects, solving technical problems and checking conformance to specifications, plans, regulations, and standards

**

  • Inspection

** o Led by trained moderator (not the author) o Usually conducted as a peer examination o Defined roles o Includes metrics gathering o Formal process based on rules and checklists o Specified entry and exit criteria for acceptance of the software product o Pre-meeting preparation o Inspection report including list of findings o Formal follow-up process Optional process improvement components o Optional reader o Main purpose: finding defects

Walkthroughs, technical reviews and inspections can be performed within a peer group,i.e. colleagues at the same organizational level. This type of review is called a “peer review”.
