A critical step in our implementations to gain success is to support our customers with extensive training and support.

This is the journey of Moira Shire Council and how they have revolutionized the way they plan and report by using the PMH Local Government Framework © and Cascade Strategy software.

Moira Shire Council needed to modernize the way they developed, tracked, and reported on their Local Government plans. 

Moira Required:

  • An Integrated Planning & Reporting Framework
  • An Easy-to-Use System
  • A specialist Local Government vendor
  • A partnership with ongoing training
  • Local Support

The Challenge:

Local Government Planning encompasses a multitude (100's) 0f planning documents. When managed through Word, Excel or old software systems the key challenges are in:

  • Overlapping plans
  • Duplication of data entry/reporting
  • Structure
  • Alignment

Introducing new technology was needed to improve the current process and help drive user adoption and engagement.

PMH Insights knew from their Local Government experience that Planning & Reporting needed a centralized and integrated approach. They were engaged to undertake an Audit and Gap Analysis on Moira shire Council's planning.

The Council saw the immediate value the planning framework would bring by eliminating duplication and integrating numerous plans to drive better reporting and engagement.

The outcome of this was an engagement to implement the PMH Local Government Framework© along with PMH Insights Training and Development Program for Managers
