The teams had a month to prepare. During this time they worked together to ensure effective productivity measures were in place, and assessed the practical needs of each team. This allowed them to make sure everything was in place to reach the set goals. Then for six weeks starting 5th March, 2018, the trial began.
To keep the process open and transparent, Andrew has talked to just about anyone who would listen about this initiative. Additionally, Andrew has engaged researchers from both the University of Auckland and Auckland University of Technology who are participating in a formal research project. The results of this will be shared publicly once complete.
After the trial, Perpetual Guardian's management team will review the results to determine if this new way of working can be rolled out on a more permanent basis.
The trial will be for six weeks from 5th March, 2018, but may be extended for a couple of weeks if deemed necessary.
