90-Day Projects

90-day projects are a fast-paced and focused approach to delivering successful outcomes

What are 90-day projects?

 The 90-day project approach is a key offering of Change@SouthAustralia and has been in place since 2012, supporting the delivery of more than 75 projects to date.

The approach supports organisations to deliver projects that address complex problems, with a focus on delivering genuine public value. Projects come from both inside and outside of Government. The majority of Government agencies have delivered at least one 90-day project, along with a number of projects established by NGOs and not for profit organisations. 90-day projects are grounded in the Public Sector Values & Behaviours.

The Change@SouthAustralia team are ready and willing to discuss any ideas or potential projects. There is the offer of a Design Workshop for all projects. This is an offsite workshop that brings stakeholders together to analyse the problem and to start shaping goals. Projects can then progress through the 90-days, benefiting from being time-boxed with a focus on innovative solutions and positive outcomes. Projects are partnered by a Change Management Consultant throughout the process to provide support and challenge.

Below you will find examples of the wide variety of projects that have been delivered via the 90-day approach.
