Chief Executive

Timetable for activities[edit | edit source]

February 2012 to January 31st 2013

Success Criteria[edit | edit source]

  • Programme delivered on budget and successfully.
  • Staff carry out duties as per their job descriptions and to satisfaction of CE and Chair.
  • Staff seen as part of Wikimedia family by volunteer community and trustees.
  • Low sickness and absentee rates.
  • Good morale in office.
  • Regular staff attendance at community events.

Risks and mitigation[edit | edit source]

  • Opposite of above.
    Low risk. The Chief Executive is tracking progress to ensure that this does not take place. Since this is being tracked on a daily-weekly basis, with no issues having been reported to the Board, this is not a significant risk.
  • High turnover of staff leading to programme delays and recruitment costs.
    Low risk. The Chief Executive is tracking progress to ensure that this does not take place. Since this is being tracked on a daily-weekly basis, with no issues having been reported to the Board, this is not a significant risk.
  • Staff end up replacing roles that are best held by volunteers
    Medium risk. The Chief Executive and the Board is tracking progress to ensure that this does not take place. Event and Communication positions are particularly at risk here. However this is being tracked on a daily basis by the CE, and should be reported regularly to the Board, which minimises the risk here.
  • Amount is higher than budgeted
    Estimated as medium risk, this turned out to be a significant issue. In particular, the original budget did not include pension costs, and it significantly underestimated the costs of a communications staff member (since this budget was originally aimed at consultancy rather than a full time employee).
