Abstract Feedback

Text clarity Good

Language Minor errors e.g. " To achieve this, the he main idea is to sub-divide..." - remove "he"?

Description of the tool/theory/concept Good, but consider going back to basics. Define what program management is and reference standards/mandatory list of references to add credibility. Also, is it true that all organizations need good program management? Also, what defines a successful program?

Purpose explanation Good and sets up the reader's expectations well

References Missing appropriate references to mandatory list of references

Relevance of article Consider the following:

  1. Who is the reader? Program Manager etc?
  2. What will the reader get out of this?
  3. Ensure depth of the article so it contributes to the program management community more than a normal web search

Grammar and style:

Grammar and spelling is fine and easy to read. A few sentences are really long and could maybe be shorter.

Figures and tables:

Are figures and tables clear?

Do they summarize the key points of the article in a meaningful way?

The figure is a good illustration and used to support the text nicely. Be aware the a figure number is missing in the text ("Figure X"). The flow is logic and there is a coherence and consistancy throughout.

Yes it is of high relevance.

The article explains well how the tool works but could provide a more hands on guideline for the readers (project managers) on how they use it.

Annotated bibliography:

Does the article properly cite and acknowledge previous work?

Does it briefly summarize the key references at the end of the article?

Is it based on empirical data instead of opinion?

Nice with the reflection of limitations. References needs to be done - but sure you already know that ;-)
