Do you have a Larry in your organization? Are you Larry?
Larry is our persona for a lab manager. He is the personwho never sleeps and seems to always be in the server room or machinelab making sure everything is still running, upgrading hardware,updating software, and managing who owns each of the machines. Hemay be the person you email at 10 pm when you need a specific machineimmediately for testing. Perhaps he then puts your name on apost-it, sticks it on a machine and then response to your email withthe ip or hostname. Maybe he is paper free and updates aspreadsheet to say who has which machine. He may even embracemodern technology and has a system where he adds this information in anotes database that everyone can see. Sometimes Larry is asked tomonitor machine usage and report results to QE and IT management, andit is possible he is responsible for requesting purchases of newhardware.
We would like to talk to you, Larry! If you are interested inparticipating in a 30 to 60 minute interview either on the phone or atLotusphere, please send an email to Cori at firstname.lastname@example.org.Please specify whether you want to do it over the phone or atLotusphere.
Thanks very much.
