IEEE 1028 recommends three specialist roles in a walkthrough:
author , who presents the software product in step-by-step manner at the walk-through meeting, and is probably responsible for completing most action items;
walkthrough leader , who conducts the walkthrough, handles administrative tasks, and ensures orderly conduct (and who is often the Author); and
The recorder , who notes all potential defects, decisions, and action items identified during the walkthrough meeting.
