Like many large and complex organisations, DET found projects were being delivered late and over budget. DET saw the need for a capability uplift program to modernise project delivery, break down silos between teams and across departments, as well as creating more project transparency.
Modernising delivery through project health assessments and agile capability uplift
We were able to develop a new standard for modern project delivery through training and working closely with leaders within the Project Services Branch. This resulted in greater interest from the executive and business stakeholders for delivering outcomes using the agile methodology.
The primary result of this project was giving the Department strategies, tactics and tools for resolving common project related issues such as progress transparency, communication and clarity which resulted in successful outcomes for key pilot projects.
This project taught us about working with the government and a deeper appreciation of the complexities that public servants navigate daily. We now understand the government's requirements for accountability, transparency and achieving value for money. We learned how to deliver solutions to the public sector in an efficient and effective way.
