Success Story: Kiikstart & The Government of South Australia

The Department of Premier and Cabinet connected with Kiikstart as key skill gaps with staff capability led to risk and vulnerability in terms of the department being able to deliver on its objectives.

The rate of change had accelerated within the team due to changing community expectations, but the current business model and team's skill-set was failing to keep up.

A planned approach using both the Innovation Capability Review and the Activation Plan provided the process and business models needed to upskill the ICT team.

Together we designed a clear plan of action to:

Allow the leadership team to identify the most important skill gaps and risks that would act as roadblocks to delivering on future success.

Consider potential scenarios and allow for different approaches to be considered.

Prioritise and focus around the key skill gaps and risk with a detailed plan of response in terms of learning and development processes and resources.

Create a clear, practical activation plan that took the risk and skill gaps and scoped it into a personalised nine part approach with innovation at its core.

By undertaking this project the Department was able to be focused on high value output as part of designing the learning and development processes and models moving into the future.

Focusing on only the top three risks from the Innovation Capability Review, and understanding how to prioritise the use of resources more strategically, the activation plan was simplified and practical. To deliver the best possible outcomes without long lead times.

What they said...

My colleagues and I met Ali at a 'skills for the future' event. What struck me immediately was her goodwill, approachable nature and strong sense of purpose and passion for her work and the industry. Lots of people talk about innovation, but Ali lives it. She has a global mindset and challenges the status quo.

Over the course of working with her, Ali asked us the pointy questions at the right times to help us evolve our thinking and create work that is both practical and action-oriented, and cutting edge and aspirational. I highly recommend her as a workforce strategist and learning and development coach.”
