The Royal Australian Navy was seeking to systemise its Divisional system to support improved career management and workforce planning. It needed a better way to keep track of employee readiness, performance, training and career development throughout its disparate and densely hierarchical organisational structure. Communication and measuring communication through the organisation was difficult.
The initial delivered product provided visible and measurable communication and reporting throughout the organisational chain. The transition of personnel information from paper to database recording provided greater privacy and organisational security, with information access restricted via role-based directive. The RAN recognised that the innate competitive nature of the organisation could be harnessed within this system, which led us to build further functions to track accountability of role responsibilities both up and down the management tree. Implementation of responsibilities and even simple tasks could be tracked, audited and presented as a whole-of-organisation compliance report on management duty of care and employee performance.
