Posted by APM on 12th Nov 2010

The following items are now available for viewing:

  • 1st drafts from authors
  • Review criteria from authors
  • Focus Group outputs

Additional sections to follow, along with specific queries for the Structure Working Group shortly.

Please find below text from email of 5th November:

We have received the first drafts of the Body of Knowledge content and the initial review by the review groups and focus groups is well underway. There are a number of people involved in the review process, including yourselves, and I just wanted to clarify the role of each group.

Review groups

Reviewing the content against the specification in terms of use of the template, tone, use of diagrams, spelling and grammar as well as keywords.

  • Collating the glossary terms to feed through to the Structure Working Group
  • Reviewing the suggested changes in definition to Portfolio Management and project
  • Reviewing the content in terms of does it reflect good practice? Is it pan sector? Is the application to projects, programmes and portfolios; applicable?
  • Offering input on specific areas raised by the authors or the initial consultation

SIG review

  • Reviewing the content in terms of does it reflect good practice? Is it pan sector? Is the application to projects, programmes and portfolios; applicable?
  • Offering input on specific areas raised by the authors or the initial consultation

All the output from these reviews will be collated and fed through to you as the reviews are completed

Role of the Structure Working Group in the review process (first draft)

  • To review the output from the focus groups, review groups and SIG review and where opinions differ, decide on the feedback to be sent through to the authors
  • Review the content of the first drafts and confirm if the structure works in the way it was intended
  • Highlight any areas of duplication
  • Make decisions, based on the output of the focus groups, review groups and SIG review on changes of titles, positioning of sections and suggested changes to the structure
  • To advise APM on the treatment of Portfolio management

NB All Glossary terms will be reviewed by the Structure Working group during the second draft review, as agreed.

We would like to make the content of the first drafts available for you from the beginning of next week via the closed group on the website, allowing you time to read the content. However, please bear in mind the role of the Structure Working Group and that you will be receiving the output from the other review strands as they are completed to inform your review.

We will be meeting on 16th December and look forward to receiving your input. If you would like to discuss anything in the meantime, please use the forum on the website rather than e-mail as this will allow us to keep an audit trail of all the discussions.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the refresh programme team
