Story is, I just started an offshore project few days ago. As always, I’m managing the project and some folks from SAP and SAP partner are working on it. They are located in China and India and some of them are new to our project or even our entire team. Is it possible to have a section like who is who there? I noticed I need to write down this section every single time. Here is what I put into there:
Roles & Responsibilities
Project manager: Nathan XXXX(Canada) / Syed XXXX(India)
Engineer: Frank XXXX(China) / Abhishek XXXX(India) / Ramesh XXXX(India)
Stakeholders: Trevor XXXX, DU leads
Can we predefine some role and assign people into there?
Can we assign country/timezone to each of them?
These will tell us where we are in geographic point of view(maybe a map will tell us better about it, this will be helpful when we need to decide where to do an onsite meeting, long distance flight = higher cost).
Also, with the timezone, we can know immediately which timeslot is the best time to host a project review meeting.
And furthermore, if we can have a review meeting section(to record down when we had the meetings and minute for each one of them), then we will be able to track down everything in same place.
