The longer you work on a project, the harder it may be for you to see it objectively. Instead, you're more likely to view the project through rose-tinted glasses, considering the time and effort you put into it—this is where an outside perspective comes in.
Having someone come in who is less invested in the specific project but still has the company's best interest at heart is exactly what you need. Their perspective can prove much-needed clarity and help you figure out any next steps, fix any mistakes, and even help clarify the impact the project can have on the company in the long run.
It's not a sign of weakness or inadequacy to ask for help, especially in the form of an outside perspective. What it instead does is distribute the responsibility of the project out from just one person or team. It allows the people working close to the project the tools they need to take a step back and look past the individual details to understand what they are trying to do in the first place.
Establishing a culture in the workplace where a second review is expected opens the door for a place in which feedback and critique are valued and not taken personally. It creates an office environment where everyone is working toward the same goal and is working in the company's best interest.
The actual value of an outside perspective is the insight and experience that can provide, which enables them to view your work more objectively. An external viewpoint can make all the difference in making or breaking a project.
