Organisational change identifies A$40 million in savings for the military

Developing and implementing a new organisational structure and design for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) to enhance internal relationships and achieve budget savings while maintaining safety.

01 Issue

Budget constraints meant the RAAF needed to deliver Force Element Group capabilities more efficiently, across dispersed locations, but without compromising safety or airworthiness.

02 Solution

We analysed existing structures and processes, including relationships between internal Defence stakeholders responsible for capability generation. We identified improvements to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of capability delivery by optimising manning levels. We tailored the solution to ensure changes were sustainable and maintained high safety levels.

03 Result

With our support, the RAAF identified approximately A$40 million in savings and implemented a new organisational structure and design that enhanced Defence’s internal relationships to enhance capability delivery.
