Director, Transformation Office
Department of Planning and Environment, NSW
Culture is a critical piece of the puzzle when driving change in the Public Sector. One can have a great strategy and the best in class technology, but all will fail without the right change management plan. As the Director of Transformation in the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, Arvind’s role is to experiment with cultural transformation as a cornerstone of achieving better outcomes for all staff and the department. This is particularly challenging given the rich legacy of the 140 year old department and over 7,300. He will share the importance not only getting your people onboard but also improving communication across the board and creating an environment people are excited not fearful of change. It is not an easy task but there is a checklist that can get you on your way.
- Creating opportunities for collaboration and improving communication across the board
- Establishing a change methodology and flipping the top down approach
- Exploring case studies from the Department of Environment and Planning
