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.
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.
