General Role Division Strategy

As the company grows, it is critical to focus jobs on critical tasks and nothing else. Only upon these tasks being executed with excellence should other tasks be added.

  1. Extensive field testing established via collaborating Pilot Projects
  2. Executive Director recruits Operations Manager to set up and stabilize Operations and legal compliance. Aggressive recruiting. If operations are pared down to the minimum essential (scalable platform for machine builds + documentation via careful contract management), then Ops Manager focuses on establishing Core Work contracts with Developers, in addition to money/legal/payroll.
  3. Operations Manager handles compliance (payroll/accounting outsourced; book-keeper outsourced). Operations manager writes OSE Operations Handbook.
  4. No dedicated video producer exists; Documentation Manager writes instructionals scripts and outsources video production from crowd contributions; Dedicated Project Visits for video work are also used. Potential H2 channel collaboration pending structuring/construction deliverables.
  5. Product Lead manages design-outsourced prototyping-production runs.
  6. Community Manager and Documentation Managers can live off-site
  7. Grid connection being negotiated for infrastructure facilitation
  8. Executive Retreat for core team bonding
