Organisations are dynamic entities that need to respond to changes in their industry,
the regulatory environment, the technologies they either deliver or utilise, and their
relationships with suppliers and customers in achieving their strategic objectives.
Regardless of whether changes are proactive or reactive, projects play a key role in
successful change occurring through transformation and innovation.

It's hard to see what our veterans go through when they return to civilian life.
They battle invisible enemies such as post-traumatic stress, depression, and
chronic pain -- all of which wage a silent war on them -- and their families.
Our veterans are in desperate need of crisis support. We need your help urgently.

SOLDIERS from across the nation met
with senior members of the Army at the
2013 Wounded, Injured and Ill Digger
Forum to focus on depression.
The soldiers and their families shared
experiences with others in similar situ-
ations at the forum in Canberra on
October 30. They also provided feed-
back on how things could be better dealt
with in the future.
CA Lt-Gen David Morrison said
it was important to remove the stigma
from mental health and let members
experiencing these symptoms know they
were not alone.
"One of our greatest responsibilities
is to ensure that soldiers who become
wounded, injured or ill in the service of
our nation receive the best care and sup-
port throughout their recovery," he said.
"As an Army family, we need to
look out for each other and provide sup-
port to those in need, particularly in rela-
tion to mental health injuries."
Lt-Gen Morrison said it was an
important opportunity to listen and learn
from the soldiers and their families,
while building a legacy of care and sup-
port for soldiers in the future.
"If you see someone feeling a bit
down, take the time to ask them how
they are doing," he said.
"If you are feeling depressed, it's OK
to ask for help."
The forum reviewed the effectiveness
of treatment, rehabilitation and recov-
ery from the perspective of soldiers and
families suffering from depression.
Outcomes will provide a better under-
standing of the complexity of issues affect-
ing members, families and commanders,
and will confirm priorities for Army.
