In the preceding chapters we have discussed the technical problems of project evaluation and selection, and indicated appropriate techniques for solving them. The choice of techniques is merely the starting-point of designing a system that will work. It is people who will have to run the system, make the evaluations, interpret the results, and take the decisions. It is for these people that the system must be designed. In this chapter we will discuss the practical points of designing project review systems with people in mind.
