Plan for staff integration and technology decommission

 Situation before interventionStaff from a Victorian Government Department had been transferred to a Statutory Body 2 years earlier. They performed the same function as existing staff, but the organisation had been unable to find a way to get them to use the same technology and processes despite various attempts. This left the transferred staff not feeling integrated into the organisation, and the productivity and service improvements anticipated as part of the transfer had not been achieved.
