DDLS says the expansion of its business will see the new business unit continue the company’s 20-year history of delivering complex logistics and supply chain projects, as well as learning and development activities to the Australian government - primarily the Department of Defence.
According to DDLS the new investment is aimed at expanding the company’s reach into the greater public sector, as well as private enterprises.
“This is an exciting step for DDLS as we continue to expand our reach into strategic advisory services,” says Jon Lang, CEO of DDLS.
“The launch of DDLS People is our commitment to innovate the way we service our clients with skilled consultancy. DDLS People has a long and established history working with the Department of Defence and a range of Government organisations and corporations to deliver successful programs and outcomes.”
“We help organisations test and implement a range of project and program management methodologies depending on their businesses requirements,” Karen Smith, DDLS People Account Director.
“These methodologies drive a path towards workflow optimisation to improve business productivity and profitability, while ensuring compliance.
“We also develop large-scale customised training programs for organisations and deliver these via flexible modalities including face-to-face classroom learning and more recently a virtual classroom model to facilitate remote learning.”
DDLS says People has expertise across four key competencies:
Learning & Development
The delivery of custom end-to-end learning and development outcomes for organisations, which are aligned to overall business strategies and delivered via traditional face-to-face, blended classroom learning, virtual classrooms, e-learning or remote learning.
Logistics & Supply Chain
Advisory services across the full suite of supply chain strategy, management, planning, analysis, performance, optimisation, assurance, and reporting. DDLS People collaboratively creates the most effective and efficient solution for any aspect of an Integrated Logistics Support or supply chain project.
Portfolio, Program & Project Management
DDLS People delivers multi-year, multi-million-dollar business and technology initiatives. The team comprises a mix of qualified program directors, project and change managers, project controllers including schedulers, risk managers, assurance, and cost estimation experts, as well as program and project administrative support personnel.
Strategic & Management Consulting
Management experts bring considerable industry knowledge to objectively assess high-level business challenges, utilising a range of methodologies including desktop reviews, facilitated workshops, business process mapping, co-designed solution options, SWOT, ‘what if’ and scenario analysis, benchmarking, and balanced scorecards.
DDLS' portfolio of business units now consists of DDLS Training, The Australian Institute of ICT and DDLS People, with eight offices across Australia and Asia.
