Shape Consulting win 2017 QLD AIPM Project of the Year and Change Management Awards

Shape Consulting’s 1 William Street (1WS) project team was recently announced as winners of the Australian Institute of Project Management’s 2017 Queensland Project of the Year and Organisation / Change Management Awards. The team celebrated at AIPM’s Queensland Gala Dinner & Project Management Achievement Awards Night on the 5th September.

Special thanks to Paul Krautz, 1WS Project Delivery Director, for his endorsement for these awards. Paul’s partnership with Shape Consulting was invaluable throughout the 1WS project.

“I have no question in my mind that Shape Consulting achieved value for money and exceptional results for the public service and the people of Queensland. The change program was carefully considered and executed… Shape Consulting also identified strategic ways to ‘go beyond’ their initial brief, without seeking contractual variations, to ensure the success of the change program.”

– Paul Krautz, 1WS Project Delivery Director

The 1 William Street Project

The Queensland Government’s dynamic new workplace at 1 William Street (1WS), Brisbane, supports efficient service delivery through agency collaboration and technology. Almost 5,000 government employees from 20 agencies work together at 1WS.

Transition to the building is recognised as Australia’s largest government integration project. The transition was also the catalyst for the most significant change in the government workplace in a generation.

Shape Consulting planned and guided this change; navigating challenges including an innovative ‘activity based’ workplace. The success of the program is evident in the more than 80% staff satisfaction with the 1WS workplace six months after transition.
