Walkthrough is one the form of Review meeting. Although it is quite different from Inspection. Like Inspection, it is not a formal process. Usually, it is initiated by the author. The author reads the document or code under walkthrough and peers note out the defects and suggestions. The moderator is not necessary for the walkthrough , as it is one of the informal ways of doing the review.
We called it as Open Ended discussion as pre-meeting preparation and preparation of a list of observation Is optional. As it is the informal process so documentation is less and defect tracking creates the challenge.
The goal of Walkthrough.
