For the past 12 years, she’s worked in Australia’s public sector across federal, state and local government jurisdictions. Working with education, transport, infrastructure, public works, health, policing, public safety and local smart cities councils, she is no stranger to collaborating to define outcomes and co-create organisational process, and technology solutions needed to be agile, fast, responsive, and citizen-centric.
"The way Accenture’s teams work together and arrive at innovative solutions involves listening to our client’s needs, co-designing with our clients, assembling the right industry luminaries from within our global network and ensuring the right people are at the table at the right time."
Currently, she and her team are serving as the "Master Technologist" for the design of a greenfield world leading airport, Western Sydney International (WSI), that will provide additional aviation capacity of 10 million passengers annually in the Sydney basin. She ascribes to the design thinking model, a methodology principle based on dismantling silos and promoting open lines of communication with stakeholders. Creating ecosystems for the best outcomes and confronting complex problems often require multi-agency responses, which helps humanise the project and invites fresh exchanges between formerly strange bedfellows.
"There is both an art and science to co-creating with our clients on new, large programs of work," said Janine. "The science involves delivery discipline and execution excellence in program management and architectural governance, and the art is in being transparent and adapting to unexpected challenges. We are successful when we deliver with our clients the art of the possible."
Airports and travel have never been too far away from Janine. Having worked with Accenture in 9 countries around the globe and spent several years living and working in Malaysia, Brunei, Italy, and New Zealand Janine has loved the adventure, cultural and personal experiences from her travel. She also practices the art of balancing work and life during her downtime. Though she is a qualified dance teacher and sometimes takes to the ballroom dance floor, her passion is sport (almost any sport except boxing!). But her time is primarily spent on the sidelines of the football pitch as she supports her son’s aspirations to become a professional footballer. She’s become an expert in the rules of offside, one-v-ones, through balls, nutmegs and penalties.
