Organisational alignment case studies

Thank you to our clients for allowing us to share these profiles.


CSL Behring ANZ provides both Australia and New Zealand a near-complete range of domestic plasma products manufactured in Australia from plasma collected in each country. In both Australia and New Zealand, CSL Behring ANZ also supplements the domestic plasma product supply with a range of commercial plasma products manufactured in CSL Behring’s global network of manufacturing facilities. CSL has made a promise to save lives and protect the health of people who are stricken with a range of serious and chronic medical conditions, and since 2014 Right Lane has assisted CSL Behring ANZ to plan and implement to deliver on this promise.


The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) is an independent statutory body responsible for the curriculum, assessment and reporting for all Victorian students and learners. During 2017 Right Lane facilitated an expert panel review of the VCAA’s Special Provision Policy and procedures. The Special Provision Policy aims to ensure that the most appropriate, fair and reasonable options are available for students to demonstrate their capabilities if their learning and assessment programs are affected by disability, illness, impairment or other circumstances. A significant outcome of this review is the expansion of the policy to cover years 7−12, on both a formal and an advisory level.


The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) is an Australian government research institute responsible for research into the wellbeing of Australian families and communities. Over the past 37 years, AIFS has undertaken significant research in a range of areas relating to family wellbeing, including child and adolescent development, work and family, indigenous families, parenting, domestic violence, child protection, and family law. Right Lane worked with AIFS staff over a series of interactions to define a set of organisational values that represent ‘what matters most’ to staff in their work at the Institute.


Worthwhile Ventures Ltd is a start-up, not-for-profit Aboriginal managed organisation, which supports Aboriginal entrepreneurs through business coaching; unsecured, zero interest loans; and business education. The Worthwhile Ventures model will use the disciplines of venture capitalism, but apply them in a philanthropic way. Throughout 2017, Right Lane assisted the Worthwhile Ventures board with the establishment of its foundation phase during which the organisation’s concepts are being learned and developed in partnership with a small number of Aboriginal entrepreneurs in Sydney. We have also helped with the development of an impact measurement framework and facilitated a number of Worthwhile Ventures Business Community forums comprising Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal industry experts, entrepreneurs and supporters.


La Trobe University has a strong mission to broaden access to higher education in Melbourne’s north and regional Victoria. It is committed to an outstanding student experience; student and graduate employability; research excellence and being the partner of choice for industry, education and the community. Over 2016/17, Right Lane worked with La Trobe University across eight different projects. One of these was to map and improve clarity in the decision rights in relation to course approval and review processes at College and University levels. Another assignment was with one of the University’s academic Colleges to streamline and improve the role clarity of formal decision-making committees.


Cbus Super is the leading profit-for-members super fund for the building, construction and allied industries. As one of the country’s largest super funds, Cbus provides superannuation and income stream accounts to more than 755,000 members and manages over $43 billion of members’ money (as at 31 December 2017). Right Lane continued its strategy and planning work with Cbus’s executive team and board in 2017; and we also worked extensively with the fund’s investment team on capability, team alignment, team forums, leadership and employee engagement.


The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is a federal government agency that protects people and the environment from the harmful effects of radiation. We helped ARPANSA’s leadership to create a more agile organisation and establish projects and ways of working that promote more agile strategy and planning, project management and resource allocation.


Right Lane worked with the City of Yarra, Family Youth and Children’s Services branch after an internal realignment to connect the roles of team members to their purpose. During this process, Right Lane worked with the team to articulate a shared purpose and team goals. Right Lane also worked with the people leaders to develop their workplans using an approach that provides clarity and focus and links the priorities of the individual with that of their colleagues, the branch and the wider organisation.
