Maud Schlich is an expert in reviews. In this interview, we talk about different types of reviews and reading techniques. Among other things, we discuss how we can ensure the quality of documents at a high level, which roles are assigned in a review, and how reviews can be conducted in a way that values the author. With a few practical examples, Maud shows us how reviews can be established in a company and how even strict bosses can be convinced of reviews 😉
