The Lab works on projects that are founded on public policy, service delivery, and complexity, with multiple partners and stakeholders. We aim to facilitate work that is outside of business-as-usual, and challenging to your core skills and competencies. To find out if your project is eligible, email the Lab with your project idea. For examples of our past work, refer to our project case studies.
Yes. Given you will be required to work on the project you nominate, you will need to obtain your manager’s permission and, generally, the approval of a senior executive.

Contact us to discuss your project idea.

We generally only facilitate workshops as part of larger projects. However, our team comprises skilled facilitators who are open to opportunities for forming partnerships and connections across Government and the State.
