Immigration Reform (the Program) is an ambitious program to transform Australia’s visa services over the next decade. MXA were engaged in a strategic advisor role to assist the Immigration Reform Program Management Office (PMO) with planning for the next phase of the Program’s delivery.
The Immigration Reform Program aims to create a visa and citizenship delivery that promotes travel, security, and Australia’s interests. The Program will simplify visa policy and streamline visa service delivery through digitisation and market partnerships. It will also strengthen intelligence and enhance technology, while equipping its workforce to deal with the continuously changing nature of today’s world.
The PMO engaged MXA to assist in facing the following challenges:
To assist the PMO with these challenges, MXA developed an understanding of the projects currently contributing to Immigration Reform’s benefits and consulted stakeholder to develop four key deliverables: Project Flipbook – a paper-based review of the in-flight and upcoming projects currently contributing to Immigration Reform and classification of projects that are core, enabling, supporting / stablising and dependent to the Program.
This planning and work placed the PMO in a position to clearly articulate the value and purpose of each piece of work within the program, informing trade-offs by the Senior Executives as the environment changes throughout the life of the program, and provide rigour and confidence in those decisions.
