One of the deliverables is a list of assumptions, how many did people put in their assignments? This looks like something that I could add quite a few if I put my mind to it!

Also how much should we be writing for the risks and mitigations? So far I have a couple of lines for each, is this reasonable or are they expecting a short essay for each?

Also using a jpg file for the diagrams seems to lose some of the lines on the diagram, is there a better format?

I provided 29 assumptions. I keep on updating and adding to this list as and when i got something in my mind.

Also how much should we be writing for the risks and mitigations? So far I have a couple of lines for each, is this reasonable or are they expecting a short essay for each?


I put around 8 technical risks and their mitigations. I provided them in the order of priority so that in case if the evaulator is strictly looking for 3 - he/she will look at the top three risks.

Also using a jpg file for the diagrams seems to lose some of the lines on the diagram, is there a better format?


This question has been answered many a times. I have used PNG because of the compression it provides.

Thanks for the reply. So how much did you write for the mitigations? A couple of lines, a page?

I wrote a short paragraph (a few lines) for two of my risks. On the third risk, I wrote almost a page. It was a fun topic to write about, so I wrote a lot. You don't need to write an essay though. They wound up asking about the third risk on part 2 and I wrote a small essay there too!

I have a page and a half of assumptions. I erred on the side of listing everything as an assumption rather than leaving something out. It wasn't an effort though as I wrote them as I went.

My assumptions list is close to a page.
My risks are only 3 (in fact I am stuggling to gill the 3rd). However, for one of the risks, I am having fun writing 3/4th of the page. For the other 2, just 2-3 lines.
 
Yeah, but how did the squirrel get in there? Was it because of the tiny ad?
