How useful is this - HFI-Certified UsabilityAnalyst?

I direct several seasoned UCD practitioners, none of whom are HFI-certified.
Elsewhere in my company, another UCD group focuses on specific types of
apps, and they are almost all HFI-certified.

The biggest difference I have seen in comparing their work to ours is
consistency in deliverables, methods and terminology (theirs, not ours =]).
As far as end results (are things more usable after engagements?), we both
perform about the same (see reasons below).

Aside from the cost of certification, I haven't seen any big negatives to

This is an unsubstantiated claim, and even if more apps use "login" than "log in," of which I'm far from convinced, the notion that users would be at a loss when encountering one rather than the other strikes me as silly.

IxD Portfolio review resources

Can anyone suggest a resource for professional portfolio reviews? As
so many of us have migrated from other fields, creating a
straightforward portfolio is more difficult. The budding IxDA
mentorship initiative may eventually provide an opportunity here, but
I'm looking for something available now.

Moreover, I haven't found much in the way of IxD-specific portfolio
tips. (Thanks SCAD and this site for a couple good tidbits). Thanks
for any help anyone can offer.

user panels


Have any of you been involved in the successful use of user panels/advisory
boards in a UCD process? If so, are you willing to share some details about
how it was used and what went well/poorly? My company has a customer
advisory board, but it's made up of executives from customer companies--I'm
looking to create panels of actual users and administrators.
