As with past events we expect assessors towork through a mock portfolio assessment as part of their commitment to ongoing training -a new caseis attached at the foot of this article. This is a portfolio from a real RPPcandidate and efforts have been made to anonymise itasfar as possible. The candidate's permission has been obtained.
Instead of just those attending the October conference, we now expect ALL RPP ASSESSORS to complete this mock portfolio assessment exercise and return it firstname.lastname@example.org BY 12TH OCTOBER. This will allow all results to be collated before the event so that more meaningful data can be produced.
Once again, completion of this exercise is required of ALL RPP assessors whether attending the October conference or not and is vital for APM to maintain assessment standards.
PLEASE DO NOT RETURN THE COMPLETED REPORT FORM TO CUSTOMER SERVICES FOR THIS TRAINING EXERCISE - IT SHOULD ONLY BE RETURNED TO ANDREA KALLIDES
Please contact Andrea if you have any queries.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Agile refuses to analyse requirements beforehand – and thus declines to provide an initial certainty. This will probably always scare any stakeholder trying to understand whether or not they can show results to the board with the budget that they are granted.
You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
