Western Australian State Government Agency Amalgamations


Western Australian State Government Agency Amalgamations - Part 3

Cultural Transformation

Western Australian Premier, the Hon Mark McGowan MLA recently announced the amalgamation of State Government agencies, reducing the number of departments from 41 to 25. Furthermore, other agencies will undergo internal reforms, including cultural reform, to drive a more integrated portfolio approach to planning and service delivery.

Organisation culture is a powerful asset, however a lack of alignment between strategy and culture can reduce or eliminate the ability of organisations to achieve their strategic objectives. According to Bersin by Deloitte research, organisational culture is one of the most important business issues for leaders. Leaders continue to acknowledge culture is critical for driving individual and team behaviour, innovation, productivity and customer service.

Our experience demonstrates that to address the challenges associated with the Western Australian State Governments agency amalgamations and reforms, there are eight cultural indices that can provide the foundations for comprehensive culture change. These multidimensional indices cover the varied fields of agency activity.

Through establishing and effectively delivering cultural transformation, agencies can obtain significant benefits including but not limited to enhanced customer service delivery, effectiveness of decision making, a collaborative knowledge sharing environment and retention of top talent.
