A strategic review of Australian Defence Force (ADF) including policy, operations and procurement found that the ADF needed significant improvements to its project management and procurement capabilities.  The ADF must undertake large-scale organisational change and find significant financial savings while maintaining a heightened pace of operations to meet Australia’s international commitments.

The ADF and Department of Defence are required to:

  • Acquire the right defence capabilities for immediate and long-term projects.
  • Establish the supporting back-office functions to allow for the rapid introduction of new capabilities.
  • Renovate their IT infrastructure to ensure information is shared across the organisation.

How we can help

Litmus’s specialist team is drawn from leadership positions in strategy, project management and operations within the defence industry and armed forces. Our team has experience in:

  • Business transformation of armed forces, including defining future state and supporting organisational structure.
  • Strategy development, including multi-national strategy assessments of the future environment and core capabilities.
  • Capability definition and procurement of advanced defence technologies.
  • Process, change and training to introduce business transformation projects.
  • Benefits realisation to identify business value of project initiatives.
  • Portfolio, program and project management of new capabilities.

Case study

Litmus was required to complete a baseline review of a leading branch within the Australian Defence Force. Our team worked with business units throughout the ADF, including operational units, headquarters, maintenance and logistics, and industry representatives to accurately identify the problems and propose areas for improvement.
Litmus has subsequently been requested to develop the long term strategy to improve the reliability and operational performance of the branch.
