Auckland Libraries

Organisation Design: Libraries Collections

Capability Group was asked to develop a new organisation design that was innovative, agile and enabled the delivery of a fresh organisation strategy. The existing organisation structure of Libraries Collections was based on geography, whereas the new service delivery model was centralised so the change impact was significant. The project involved running a series of design workshops with all impacted staff, other key stakeholders and an internal design team. Capability Group consultants then worked through their multi-step agile design process to create a final organisation design ready for consultation.

Auckland Leisure and Recreation

Organisation Design and Change:
Leisure and Recreation

Since the 2010 amalgamation and creation of a single Auckland Council, the organisation redesign of the Leisure and Recreation function has been the biggest reorganisation to occur within Council. Impacting more than 1100 staff across leisure centres, swimming pools, early childhood centres and recreation planning, this project was significant in both scope and scale. Capability Group completed a detailed current state assessment, held a series of more than 20 design thinking workshops with impacted staff, facilitated workshops with an internal design team and executed the development of the detailed service delivery model and organisation structure.
