Stacey’s topic is “Challenges and Opportunities in Establishing a strong Project Controls culture in a large Government Agency”. This presentation will focus on the journey through reform and the subsequent development of a strong Project Controls culture in a large Government agency, as an outcome of the First Principles Review.

The presentation will look at the journey so far, the journey still to travel and explore the challenges and opportunities along the way. Stacey will also reflect on her view from outside the Agency, now that she is taking the view of being an external capability and capacity provider, as opposed to an internal view. The presentation will look at her Leadership learnings along this journey, focussing on the development of a strong and high-performing team.

Stacey joined Synergy Group in mid-September, after an eighteen and a half year career in Defence. During her tenure in the Government sector, she lead teams in quality assurance, software estimation, project controls, and policy development. Stacey has a wide range of qualifications spanning physics, IT hardware, psychology, business relationship management and public-sector management.

She has lead major initiatives such as the implementation of the Cost Estimation, Analysis and Modelling Tool (CEAMOT), The 12 Step Cost and Schedule Estimation Process, and the development of a Software Estimation Program in Defence.
