An Example of Our Work
Organisational and Business Review: Wyndham City Kindergarten Services
Completed a comprehensive review of kindergarten services for Wyndham City (one of the fastest growing councils in Australia and the second largest local government provider of kindergarten services in Victoria with 23 kindergarten centres, 2,400 children). This review included consideration and redesign of the organisational structure, analysis of roles, people, systems and processes, fees, timetables, commercial viability, benchmarking against other LGAs, etc. These other LGAs included Brimbank, Casey, Hume, Knox, Melton, and Whittlesea.
Recommended the implementation of a more sustainable service delivery/business model and associated organisational restructuring and a raft of other changes, including the identification of recurring savings in excess of $0.5m in a budget of $16m per annum.
Then subsequently conducted a further review of outsourced arrangements for two kindergartens and an evaluation of the Kindergarten on Schools Sites (KoSS) model. Identified potential savings of approximately $400k per annum.
