With demanding timelines and increasing nuances of document review, a certain number of mistaken review calls should be expected. However, many of these mistakes can be avoided with smarter planning, defensible review processes, sound technology and management controls.

Below are some common pitfalls to avoid for a smooth and successful document review project.

1. Not putting in the time upfront: Failing to formulate a robust strategy and a comprehensive review manual can quickly derail a document review project. Do not begin the review without a proper project implementation plan with due consideration to workflow, staffing, training, quality control methodology and communication methods. Ensure the correct infrastructure is in place: a quiet and dedicated work space with comfortable seats, dual monitor computers, a good IT network and connectivity for smooth functioning of the project.
