Sysdoc Wins Gold, Bronze at Prestigious Brandon Hall Awards

Bevan Davis

Sysdoc/Fonterra and Sysdoc/WorkSafe have picked up two wins at the Brandon Hall Group’s 2019 Excellence Awards, which celebrate organisations that have successfully deployed programmes, strategies, systems and tools that achieve measurable results.

The two wins, one gold and one bronze, reaffirm Sysdoc’s niche role as a boutique business consultancy of relatively small stature but enormous clout.

The gold award, in the “Best Advance in Custom Content” category, was received for an online training module that our digital consultants developed for Fonterra’s Food Safety Culture Programme.

This was an interactive, narrative-based introduction to the fundamentals of food safety, both in the home and in manufacturing environments.

The learners were not involved in food production in an operational sense, which made the approach more complex, as the intent was to impart the gravitas of food safety to people operating in a corporate space.

Food safety in the home was introduced as a way to make the whole module relatable to everybody across the entire organisation.

The judges were impressed with the engaging nature of the content, that packaged a relatively technical topic and made it not only digestible and appealing, but award-winning!

The bronze award, in the “Best Unique or Innovative Leadership Development Program” category, was won for the WorkSafe Leadership Fundamentals programme.This programme provides an experiential learning pathway to all WorkSafe staff, using a blended learning approach to create real opportunity for change and development, and was developed collaboratively with WorkSafe to meet organisational needs, as well as those of individuals within it.

I have worked alongside other consultancies on previous programmes in the past, but this was a first for me, working within a partnership from the offset.

Why Process Excellence is key for a successful ERP Implementation

I have been reflecting on my experiences working on ERP implementation/upgrade programmes whilst also listening and hearing to what others have to say. I think back to these projects and notice everyone was working hectically towards the programme ‘Go – Live’ and were under the impression that once they achieved this Go - Live then we have successfully implemented a new ERP System and our job is complete. I think many people can agree with me that a Go – Live date is just the start of the journey.  We have got to think about the people, culture, education, efficiency in processes and where can we reduce ‘waste’.

Being part of the conversations that need our attention – It’s a Penalty

It is not uncommon for us as humans to shy away from some discussions. It might be too difficult, make us uncomfortable or make us feel as if there is nothing we can do to make a difference. However, sometimes that is all we need to do to encourage change; have the conversation.
