Recent Testimonials


“Defence has been enabled to better support Joint Collective Training and Simulation services into the future. I am delighted with the rigorous diagnostic approach and methodology used to identify current state issues, gaps, risks, causes and opportunities to improve our capability, capacity, efficiency and effectiveness. Thank you for a first-class job.” 

Director General, Headquarters Joint Operations Command

“Providence have recently demonstrated their superior ability to unpack complicated issues and identify credible paths for the future. They led a project involving a significant number of Defence participants with a diverse range of views. They coached us through a wide variety of critical thinking tools. These activities were sequenced in a logical manner resulting in all participants being taken on a coherent intellectual journey. By the conclusion of the project all participants had a sense of ownership in outcomes and were able to present these to Defence senior leadership (COSC submission).”

ADF Provost Marshal

“This strategic plan enables our organisation to achieve its mission and vision for the next two years by fostering organisational alignment to strategic objectives and supporting the growing maturity of the organisation. Delivery against the Roadmap is critical to ensure we meet stakeholder expectations. Thank you to the team for the significant stakeholder engagement, systems thinking and collaborative approach. It’s been a pleasure working with you.”

Director General, Australian Defence Simulation and Training Centre
