PDRI Review Mode

PDRI Review Mode

After a PDRI session has been completed, it can be reviewed from the Review Mode.  

The Assessment Review Mode allows users to view the assessment details in a read-only view. This is the primary view accessible to Stakeholder users, and can also be accessed by users with Facilitator and Admin roles.
‚Äč
This view is beneficial to facilitators and project leaders who can easily present assessment results to a group and quickly respond to questions by drilling down into sections, categories and elements/factors to provide more detail.

Accessing Assessment Review

The Assessment Review feature is accessed by:

1) Clicking on the project to view related assessments
2) Clicking on the assessment name (e.g. PDRI 2, CRA, Commissioning) to enter review mode.

PDRI Assessment Summary Dashboard
  1. Action items. Action items can be filtered based on the Status dropdown, and exported as a .csv file.
  2. Attendees. Lists all session attendees.
  3. Summary of Gaps. Elements can be filtered to show Maturity Elements, Accuracy Factors, or all PDRI Elements. Click on the element name to view the element description and the number of action items to view the specific action items captured. Click on the header titles for sort the dashboard view.
  4. Section Summary. This tab shows the scores for each of the PDRI Sections. Since PDRI scores should decrease as scope definition increases, project teams want the inside circle to be as small as possible. However, scoring differs for the Accuracy section, which aims to have a high score.
    1. A % Complete value is shown for each of the circle graphs. This shows how close this section is to being fully defined. All sections (including Accuracy) should aim to increase their % Complete score. To view how this score is being calculated, click on the blue hyperlinked value. 
    2. Select a circle graph to updates the bar graph below. On the bar graph, click on the blue Project bar to jump to the review of that section.
