  5. 1- Management Office

  6. New (compared to initial plan) SysAdmin AND Webmaster China Coordination Changes in sight Catherine Nuel status Jean-Pierre Laisne to withdraw from MO Constraints Office Manager / Admin Assistant needed Integration of Chinese Managers Availability of current Managers (100% or Not?) Limited FTE* contribution by Strategic Members OPAL Team Provisional team set up to manage technology transition and urgencies Management Office Issues CEO Cedric Thomas Activities Coordinator Julie Marguerite CTO Jacques Cayuela Events Org. Catherine Nuel SysAdmin Armel Lannois Webmaster Giampaolo Fiorentino China Coord. Cherry Bian OPAL TEAM VP Ecosyst. Dev. Jean-Pierre Laisné Office Manager / Admin Assistant *FTE = Full Time Equivalent

  7. Contribution by Strategic Members is not up to what was committed Motivation issue Insufficient Consortium visibility Lack of information Opportunism Maturity issue Learning curve Consortium needs only ramping up Execution issue Appointed personnel not 100% available Noise generation Expected personnel In-kind contributions Meeting venues Telephone Office Travel Computer Resources Marketing Legal Admin 13 (1 FTE each except 2 for INRIA) Strategic Members Contribution

  8. Simple evaluation of personnel availability Simple evaluation of in-kind contribution Measuring Strategic Members Contribution

  9. How de we complement MO? SysAdmin MarCom specialist Should we increase number of full-time employees? Office Manager needed Catherine Nuel Status System Administrator MarCom Specialist How do we manage FTE personnel contributions?
