Answer, Regular Review. That might sound like a dull answer. But I think it’s the correct one. In this article I have two jobs to do.

Before we go much further, what is a regular review? One thing it’s not is massaging data in Excel or a BI tool. That’s data analysis. A review is more thoughtful, personal and powerful. It uses various information sources as well as your gut to reach points of clarity. It then moves into planning, so you know what to actually do.
