  • Staff Summit 2013: New York City, USA
    • The majority of the OWASP Staff met for 4 days in New York city for a week long staff working summit.
    • Topics covered include: global marketing, international accounting, SalesForce, project lifecycle, project marketing, chapter funds, etc.
    • A visual workflow for the projects lifecycle was discussed and outlined.
    • Project funds allocation guidelines were discussed.
    • Operational set up in SalesForce for projects was discussed and planned.
  • Projects in SalesForce
    • All existing project meta data has been entered into SalesForce.
    • Currently, I am working on developing the projects dashboard and reporting work flow within SalesForce.
    • Kate and I discussed an organisational structure within SalesForce that we can build and use to manage our projects.
    • SalesForce portals were discussed as a long term solution for our project leaders, project initiative job management, and user data.
    • Short term solution is to create an efficient workflow for me to manage all of this data while our portals are being developed.
  • Project Lifecycle Info-graphic
    • The Ops Team had a long discussion about the project lifecycle, and the visualisation of that information.
    • I wanted to be sure my doodles would make sense to individuals unfamiliar with the process.
    • Several adjustments were made based on team feedback.
    • I am sourcing different design agencies for an info-graphic quote.
  • Internal Marketing Plan
    • The Ops Team had a long discussion about our marketing needs, marketing relationships, and deliverables.
    • We went through each line item and discussed the deliverable in details.
    • The outcome was a list of deliverables that have been approved, require adjustments, or that require a complete re-work.
    • Our list has been communicated to the Marketing company hired to create our deliverables.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
