This information represents to the best of our knowledge the essence of the discussions that took place on the day as it was fed back to the group. The contents have been checked by all of those who presented items on the agenda, but obviously there may have been points discussed in workgroups that we have not been able to capture.

The small number of assessors who attended neither 25th October 2012 NOR 26th April 2013, will, in line with contractual obligations, be required to attend this event in order to remain active within the RPP assessor pool and will be contacted shortly - please ensure this date is in your diaries, and contact APM as soon as possible if you know you will not able to attend.
As part of your commitment to ongoing training, we expect all assessors to work through the standardisation exercise attached at the foot of this article. This is a portfolio from a real RPP candidate and efforts have been made to anonymise it as far as possible.
ON THIS OCCASION WE ARE EXPECTING ASSESSORS TO AVOID SCORES OF 1, USING ZEROES AND TWOS ONLY - PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND WHEN CARRYING OUT THE ASSESSMENT.
This must be completed and submitted by ALL ASSESSORS, whether they intend to be present on 22nd October or not.
Please allow enough time to complete the exercise. Your report should be e-mailed to Shohreh.email@example.com by 5PM 11th October so that analysis can be carried out on the results.
Attendees should bring a copy of their completed portfolio assessment report for this exercise and are requested to wear their RPP Assessor name badge to the event.
If you have misplaced your Name badge please let Shohreh know by 11th October. Replacements will either be brought along to the conference / posted to individuals / provided at your next professional review event.
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 PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS AND KNOWLEDGE.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries. Thank you for your cooperation.
NB with the exception of reasonable travel expenses, attendance and preparation work for training events are not chargeable.
The next conference is scheduled for 23rd April 2014

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.
