Registration Closed

This is a session at AITD2017 Conference



Standards Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that develops Australian Standards, employing 100 staff members and coordinating 7500 contributors.

The organisation identified a need for a strategic approach to learning and development providing the what, how and why of Standards to everyone involved in the standards development process. This case study will detail the strategies undertaken to consult on this new venture, align with the organisation’s strategic goals, gain supporters for the journey, and launch a modern Academy whilst maintaining engagement and positive relationships with stakeholders. All of this started with a blank page and was delivered on a shoestring without compromising business and user requirements.

Session Highlights:

  1. Steps taken to understand the strategic direction of the organisation
  2. Planning and launching a modern academy
  3. Engaging diverse stakeholders
