NSW Ministry of Health (MoH) - JMO Redesign Project

Our Approach

Building on previous approaches to accommodate this transition, the project manager worked with the key stakeholders to better understand their needs, and conducted gap analyses and change impact assessments to inform process streamlining proposals and to support the communication of these to stakeholders.

Flexibility in our approach was required throughout the campaign to take into account the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Outcomes

  • Created and supported the development of cross agency workflows
  • Interrogated historic policy and administrative requirements to ensure the integrity of the campaign persisted while removing redundant steps.
  • Communicated formally and informally with key stakeholders to keep all abreast of progress in a swiftly changing ecosystem.
