GOTAFE is a large regional provider of vocational education and training (VET) services in Victoria.
GOTAFE sought a digital strategy and roadmap to guide its ambition of becoming a leading digitally-enabled training provider. The digital strategy was to build on education and workforce strategies and a social justice charter.
We worked closely with GOTAFE to develop the five-year digital strategy and roadmap for implementation. To understand our starting point, we assessed GOTAFE’s information technology and workforce capabilities and considered how they might look in the future. Through consultations, a survey and further business analysis, we established key business requirements for students, industry, workforce and organisation.
To develop the strategy and roadmap, we:
We translated the strategy into a compelling written story and an engaging animation to enable GOTAFE to spread the word of its digital ambitions to critical stakeholders in an easy-to-understand way. We also assisted with implementation activities, including defining an agile implementation approach, prioritising the first wave of initiatives and achieving enterprise-wide alignment and ownership to enable successful delivery.
Throughout the project we transferred skills and knowledge to GOTAFE staff to enable them to fully own the digital strategy and implementation roadmap.
Nous delivered a practical digital strategy and helped present it to the GOTAFE Board, which endorsed it. The digital strategy will enable GOTAFE to transcend its traditional geographic catchment for education services, leading to improved financial sustainability for the organisation and greater value for the students and industry partners it serves. The digital strategy is now a pillar of GOTAFE’s vision for an exciting future.
