Assessor Conferences - agenda, map and preparation
Posted by APM on 3rd Nov 2011
About half of the assessor pool will be attending the Assessor Conference on 16th November 2011, we expect the remaining members to attend the next event on 25th April 2012. Both events will take place at ETC Venues, The Hatton, Farringdon, London. The following link will take you directly to the map:
Please see the agenda for the November meeting:
10am - Welcome and Overview + Housekeeping (Brendan D'Cruz, Lead Verifier)
10.10 - RPP Progress Update (John Zachar)
10.45 - Overview of Verification Process (BDC)
11.15 - Tea/Coffee Break
11.30 - Feedback: Purpose and Expectations (Verifiers Steve Simister and Geraldine Duffy)
12.30 - Lunch
13.30 - Mock Portfolio Assessment/Standardisation Exercise (BDC)
15.00 - Tea/Coffee Break
15.15 - Review, Q&A and AOB (All)
16.00-16.30 - Close
As mentioned a few weeks ago, we are asking you to carry out some preparation work before the meeting. Please work through the attached Test Case as a mock Portfolio Assessment and bring your portfolio assessment report along to the meeting. As this is part of ongoing assessor training, neither attendence nor the preparation work is chargeable to APM (except reasonable travel expenses)
N.B. all of the current assessor guidance documents can be found in the article dated 9th August 2011.
For assessors not attending the November event, we still believe this is valuable exercise to perform - results will be included in the minutes which will be sent after the event, to the entire assessor pool.
Please note that different preparation work will be sent to all assessors before the Assessor Conference in April 2012 - the above notes will still apply.
Please contact Andrea if you have any queries: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
