Organisational Reviews

Having you two in the room has saved us three months’ work
Ben Stewart, Shoalhaven Council

How do you know if your organisation is maximising its potential? When you’re close to the organisation or working on the inside, it’s sometimes difficult to see what you could be doing better or differently.

Blackadder Associates has a skilled team that can gain an understanding of the key job activities, the strategic and cultural environment, service levels, staffing challenges and future sustainability of your council.

We spend time comparing the structures of similar councils to compare budgets, staffing levels and service profiles and appreciating the organisation’s appetite for change.

We work with the Mayor and Councillors, the executive team and service unit managers to discuss emerging issues and then determine whether the organisation has a focus on performance, customers and efficiency and how open your team is to implementing solutions such as shared services or outsourcing.

Our approach will:

  • recommend innovative and best-practice solutions 
  • provide a detailed action plan
  • include a draft Communication Plan to maximise staff engagement
  • ensure that the organisation structure aligns with - and gives life to – the Community Strategic Plan.
