    Problem Summary ACP Boards may operate as panels rather than serial interviews
    Problem Text An accreditation organization wishes their Boards to operate as
    interview panels, in which a team interview (of up to 2 hours) take place
    between a candidate and the board members simultaneously rather than
    3 one at a time interviews in series.

    Given the more demanding environment for candidates, and the way in
    which the board may behave as a group, it is considered most unlikely
    that a candidate would be accepted by this approach but rejected by
    serial interviews. There is therefore no expected reduction in the
    quality of the program.

    This would also allow for witnesses to discrepecies with first hand
    knowledtge of what went on during an board interview, addressing risk
    concerns of the organization performing the review.

    An ACP operating with panels should be required to constitute the board
    in a similar fashion to the current Open Group process definition.

    ACPs that wish to operate serial boards may of course continue to do so.

    No change is implied for the way direct boards operate.
