It is like watching where you are going while riding a bicycle; you can adjust as you go along and ensure that you are on the right track
Review: to lookback upon; view retrospectively
Evaluation: is the assessing and judging the value of a piece of work, an organisation or a service. Its main purpose is to help an organisation reflect on what it is trying to achieve, assessing how far it is succeeding, and identify required changes.
