Ul­rike: Hi, ev­ery­one. OK, so I’d like to talk to you about our Ming project. This shouldn’t take more than about ten min­utes. As you know, this is a key project, which will en­able us to in­crease our ca­pac­ity to three times what it was five years ago. We started this project two months ago and, as you prob­a­bly know, we’re in stage three now. The graph on this slide shows you an over­view of our his­tory and cur­rent ca­pac­ity in our depart­ment. Is ev­ery­one with me so far? Is­abelle: Yes.

Pierre: Sure.

Ul­rike: Great. We’ve fin­ished the prepa­ra­tion and we’ve al­ready started the main part of stage three. How­ever, we’ve en­coun­tered some prob­lems in get­ting in­for­ma­tion from the other de­part­ments. It’s ei­ther not com­ing or it’s com­ing very late and this is af­fect­ing our timeline. Un­for­tu­nately, we haven’t been able to com­plete all the re­port­ing tasks we wanted to. We haven’t solved this yet and must find a solution. Our next step needs to be some­thing that cre­ates more col­lab­o­ra­tion on this project. Do you fol­low me?

Martin: Yes, I think so.

Ul­rike: We need the sup­port of all de­part­ments. Oth­er­wise, we’ll con­tinue to run late and no one will ben­e­fit. Do you see what I mean?

Is­abelle: OK. You have a point. So what do you need?

Ul­rike: I’m glad you asked. I need some help in get­ting the in­for­ma­tion from the other de­part­ments. Can you please talk to the depart­ment heads about this? Is­abelle: Sure, no prob­lem. I wasn’t aware there’s an is­sue.

Ul­rike: Thanks. Also, can we ex­tend the cur­rent deadline for this stage by a cou­ple of weeks? If we can get the in­for­ma­tion we need quickly, I’m sure we can get back on sched­ule soon.

Pierre: I don’t see why not. Let me look into it for you.

Ul­rike: Great, thanks. So, that was my up­date on the Ming project. Let’s fol­low up in­di­vid­u­ally af­ter this meet­ing.
