Executive structure review

The Client:
A major NSW government agency with a compliance focus.

The Project:
We were engaged to review the client’s executive structure and provide the client with structural options that aligned executive roles, functions and teams across the business.

The Approach:
Following consultation with the Agency’s head, we conducted key project activities including:

  • Synthesising existing findings and background documents that had already been developed by the client, so that this work could inform the development of a new Executive structure;

  • Developing interview guides and conducting sixteen one-on-one stakeholder interviews with the Executive and senior managers;

  • Facilitating cluster interviews with operational staff; and

  • Developing a draft report that summarises analysis of the findings, and contains options for a new Executive structure. This also included a comparative analysis of similar organisations.

The Outcome:
Our structural options successfully ensured compliance with the Public Service Commission’s framework, including the NSW Government Sector Employment Act 2013. They were also successful in aligning executive roles, as well as functions and teams at the organisation.
