Dave: What are the next steps if we are to have a new system?
Randhir: Well, the first question is – do you have support from your senior management?
Dave: Yes, I’ve already discussed it with them and they’re also keen to get this work done.
Randhier: Ok, because I was going to say, that’s the first thing you need to do and without that we can’t go ahead.
Dave: Yes, I’ve done that.
Randhir: That’s good.
Dave: Actually, they mentioned that there’s probably a form I need to complete to formally start the project.
Randhir: Yes- that’s the next thing you need to do. I’ll send you an email with a link so you can fill it online. It’s called a ‘project request form’.
Dave: OK, great, And then what happens?
Randhir: Well, I have a list of things but I think the third thing you should do is see Samir. He’s our analyst who will look at the system and identify what needs to be done.
Dave: Ok – can you send me his contact details and I’ll set up a meeting with him.
Randhir: Ok that’s good, so we should soon be able to get a team together to start the work. Some members of our team work in different locations so it’s not easy to have face to face meetings.
Dave: That’s OK – I’m used to having conference calls providing they are not late at night.
