Livingstone Shire Council

Project Management Maturity Assessment

Project Overview

LogiKal was engaged by the PMO and CEO of Livingstone Shire Council to conduct an independent review of the Yeppoon Foreshore & Town Centre Revitalisation Project.

LogiKal’s Approach

LogiKal was engaged to conduct an independent project management review of a significant project in the region.

The scope was to access the processes, procedures and tools being utilised to document and track progress.

This included:

  • Phase 1 – LogiKal conducted a series of ‘Discovery Reviews’ which consisted of face-to-face interviews with the project team and council’s internal stakeholders.
  • Phase 2a – LogiKal suggested the project team expand to include a project controls expert to track progress and give confidence that the project was on track.
  • Phase 2b – LogiKal supported the PMO by developing a project management framework(PMF), new templates, increased organisational capability, collating business requirements for the new software, and business process mapping.

LogiKal’s Value Add

A report was compiled outlining all findings and recommendations which highlighted the need for a project control capability within the project, and support to the PMO in developing and implementing the PMF to the whole of the council.

Successful outcomes included:

  • Development & implementation of the PMF which included new processes and templates to enable improved project delivery
  • Developing business requirements for Technology One
  • Business Process Mapping
  • Embedding of a Governance Framework for the Executive Leadership Team
  • Increased organisational capability by training 36 senior management staff

The delivery of PMF, Governance Framework and PM Training was well received and completed over a 12-month period.
