The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) aims to accelerate Australia’s shift to secure, affordable and reliable renewable energy. On behalf of the Australian Government, it is ARENA’s job to find the best renewable energy ideas and connect them with the resources they need to help power the nation’s future.
In 2017 ARENA underwent a major review of its operations commissioned by its Board. As a result of this, in 2018 the agency initiated a major organisational transformation program to ensure it was best positioned to meet its future objectives.
The program consisted of eight complex work streams, each made up of several, interdependent activities and deliverables. A key enabler for the success of the transformation was the ability to influence and change behaviours within the organisation to maximise the benefits of the program.
Pragma was engaged by ARENA to lead each of the eight work streams comprising the organisation’s transformation program. Given the significant scope and breadth of the project, our consultants developed a detailed delivery plan to manage the interrelated and overlapping elements, to ensure a coherent, collaborative engagement with ARENA, and a smooth transition to the desired future state. Pragma employed deep program management oversight to ensure each work stream delivered on agreed outcomes in the expected timeframe.
