The approach to customer service was significantly revised, shifting staff from a task focus to a customer service focus. A Station Management Model and the underpinning business process improvements were the articulation of the new approach to customer service. The team responsible for implementing the change required support.
Stations relied on mainly paper based processes to do their work, staff feedback indicated dissatisfaction with approaches to change and training and low confidence in technological solutions and while Managers had attended Lean Six Sigma training there was minimal evidence of data driven continuous improvement initiatives.
We partnered with the Sydney Trains Removing Bureaucracy Team to develop approaches to change, capability building, training and documentation. Our scope of work was increased over the course of the project enabling the Removing Bureaucracy Team to fully leverage our team’s capabilities.
Our scope of work included conducting business process mapping, supporting software upgrades doing UATs and audits, conducting change readiness assessments and business impact analysis, conducting training needs analysis, facilitating and coaching managers in Lean Six Sigma, behavioural change, customer focused service, designing and implementing training, writing User Guides and online support material.
