Local councils in Australia – from the capital cities to regional communities – are facing a period of significant disruption as they deal with a range of issues including population change, budget constraints, economic transition and rising demands and expectations on services.

It’s clear that these shifts require new ways of thinking about the way services are delivered and how local government organisations need to respond. Undertanding citizen and stakeholder expectations, using data in smarter ways, adopting digital technologies, driving efficiencies and developing the workforce will all help to foster more prosporous and resilient communities.

  • Our team of specialists can help.

    We combine hands-on local experience with insights from our global network to support our clients across a range of specialist areas including commercial and financial advice to organisational and technology transformation – working with them to navigate better outcomes for Australians.
