In 2021 commenced partnering with The Treasury to undertake benefits and evaluation engagements for two very major government policy initiatives. These engagements have provided Treasury with the approaches to successfully understand and express the achievement of policy outcomes in measurable terms. Expressing policy in outcome terms and representing the link of policy initiatives to desired outcomes has assisted Treasury to define success for those policies.

propositions for numerous business cases for both agency and cross agency change initiatives.
