2:40 PM Case Study: Insights into How the NSW Department of Planning and Environment Maintained Consistency in Governance During Machinery of Government Changes

Machinery of government changes affects every department, and for some, it often leads to inheriting functions that may not traditionally sit together. For the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, recent changes meant that the organisation had to build up a business continuity approach and framework in order to maintain consistency around governance, have a more active assurance program and help create simplified approaches to help staff meet their obligations despite the change. In this session, Rod will provide insights on:

  • Removing the complexity and transforming multiple systems into a single corporate governance solution
  • Overcoming the barriers of capacity and resources – Developing the right teams and committees to get involved with implementing and preparing for changes
  • Ensuring consistency with knowledge management and information sharing as a means to grow each individual and manage integrity, transparency and accountability
