impressions of Ruuds Goodbye of ASML
not imagine a better alternative for this part
of my career.
I have taken the chance to learn a lot, develop some own
thoughts and share them with many collaegues.
However, I have no illusion about the shortlivedness of
knowledge / information @ ASML
especially on our Best Known Methods (BKM).
be replaced tomorrow by someone
BKM as we have hardly ASML
(did you know "we" have 1200
on the net ?)
I'd like to summarise the Best Known Methods that worked for me
to allow you to judge what can be thrown away and what
to use / rediscover after June 1st (garage sale).
I will give a number of colloquia before I leave :
- Pick one of the 3 identical
March 3, 12:00 -12:30 GPTW and IT supported Collaboration

How much room for improvement is there ?
Auditorium bldng 7, VhV
is a great Place to Work (GPTW). This
includes IT tooling to collaborate : Sharepoint
Collaboaration, MyASML, Wiki, Yammer, TCE and last
but not least Netscanner.
But at coffee machines I hear too many complaints. In this
meeting I want to give you the opportunity to share your ideas what
improvements are possible on Collaboration

Generation Process (PGP) is our main process at ASML There are
still some misunderstandings with newcomers AND people who work here

limitations of the Key Decision Process
are explained by the last active PGP Architect before his retirement.

CR VDH 08.B.00.001

methodology goes further than the familiar Chance Impact matrix (boter

Triple Cconstraint Management, Bottom up Forecast Analysis Domain and
Decision support A last
opportunity to hear the story from the architect and ask him
questions you always wanted to ask.

successes and pitfalls;
Auditorium bldng 7,
@ ASML has been one of our success pillars.
We often do not realise that a large part of
our collaboaration is done in shifted time,
as we are too busy for synchrone collaboration (meetings)
or work in other time zones.
I summarise a number of great Collaboration experiences I had in the
last 22 years.
I will share my concerns on some current development
and will advice colleagues on how to preserve assets.
6; 16 -17h

the ideas to start benefitting from the proven methods in PGP.
