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.

A COLLABORATION between
Navy meteorology and ocean-
ography (METOC) officer LCDR
Lincoln Trainor and government
agencies has resulted in him being
presented with a Navy commenda-
tion for service for his work on the
BLUElink ocean forecasting system.
LCDR Lincoln Trainor received
the commendation on February 28
in Melbourne from the Bureau of
Meteorology's Dr Neville Smith.
The award recognises LCDR
Trainor's contribution to a highly
successful collaboration, which
establishes the RAN as one of the
most advanced navies in the world in
terms of its oceanographic capability.
Dr Smith, one of the Bureau's
senior executives, acknowledged
the productive partnership between
the RAN, Bureau and CSIRO to
develop a state-of-the-art ocean
forecasting system known as
BLUElink, and praised LCDR
Trainor's energy and expertise.
LCDR Trainor's citation said:
"Guided by the New Generation
Navy signature behaviours, you

NAVY aims to support the 2012
Telstra Business Women's Awards,
for which nominations are now being
Navy has supported this award for
the past two years and achieved some
success in gaining recognition for
women in demanding leadership roles.
Last year, RADM Robyn Walker
won the Community and Government
Award for the ACT and was also
awarded the ACT Business Woman of
the Year Award.
LEUT Kylie Beumer won the 2011
Northern Territory Young Business
Woman of the Year Award.
Navy Women's Strategic Adviser
CMDR Jenni Heymans said CN was
keen to continue to seek recognition
of women in uniform in 2012 through
this nationally recognised award pro-
gram and expected commanding offic-
ers and Navy leaders to encourage the
nomination of worthy candidates.
The most appropriate of the
five categories is the White Pages
Community and Government Award,
which is open to employees in govern-
ment departments, statutory bodies
and not-for-profit organisations.
Winners of the qualifying catego-
ries are also eligible to win the overall
Telstra Business Woman of the Year
for their state/territory.
Nominees will be invited to enter
the program by submitting their entry
online by a specified date (likely to be
June). Entries are assessed by a judg-
ing panel and finalists selected. State
and territory winners are announced
at the state/territories awards ceremo-
nies. National winners are announced
at the national presentation dinner in
Melbourne in November.
Nominations for the 2012 awards can
now be made online at www.telstrabusi-

HIGH-performing LEUTs and POs now
have the opportunity to be included at
the forefront of Navy's future leaders.
CN agreed in February to intro-
duce an initiative that rewards high-
potential LEUTs and POs by opening
nominations for them to attend Navy
Leadership Development Workshops
(NLDW) with more senior colleagues.
The Director General Navy People,
CDRE Vicki McConachie, said it was
essential for the Navy to recognise and
support Navy's future leaders.
"This initiative aims to reward peo-
ple who demonstrate exemplary behav-
iour and contribute to Navy's desired
culture," CDRE McConachie said.
She said the initiative would iden-
tify and nurture officers and sailors who
showed superior potential, helping them
to be instrumental in shaping and deliv-
ering a better Navy.
LEUTs and POs who are recognised
as high performers by their heads of
department can be nominated to partici-
pate in the NLDW.
Heads of department are encouraged
to recommend suitable candidates by
completing the relevant application form
that can be downloaded from the Navy
Leadership and Ethics intranet site.

and Ethics program visit the NGN site on

Dr Smith said the physical
oceanography around Australia was
extremely complex, so the Navy
needed to understand and predict it
in order to fight effectively.
The BLUElink system achieves
this using a range of ocean
observations and a forecasting
model hosted on the Bureau's
supercomputer. It predicts the
temperature, salinity, currents and
sea surface height out to six days.
The BLUElink project has also
developed higher resolution models,
which can be set up over areas of
particular interest, and which are
routinely run by Navy forecasters.
LCDR Trainor's career
has included employment as a
forecaster, being deployed to
provide direct support to command
teams during exercises, and project
work in the Hydrography and
He has also worked as a
METOC in Britain during a Long
Look exchange, and completed a
masters degree in oceanography at
the US Naval Postgraduate School in
He featured in a story
on BLUElink in ABC TV's Catalyst
science program in 2010.
WELL DONE: Dr Neville Smith

Trainor on his commendation.
