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.

winner of this award."

been recognised for his performance.

for Operation Resolute on September
13 after two weeks of training by Sea
Training Unit -- Minor War Vessels
(STU-MWV) and assessment by the
senior assessor, COMWAR CDRE
COMWAR embarked in HMAS
Albany and put the crew through its
paces to ensure it was capable of meet-
ing all mission requirements.
With the training vessel MV
Discovery III simulating a foreign fish-
ing vessel and a suspected irregular
entry vessel, Attack 1 successfully
conducted and demonstrated compe-
tence in different boarding scenarios
encountered during border protection
Personnel from STU-MWV and
Transit Security Element (TSE) 70
embarked in Discovery III and simu-
lated the management of difficulties
encountered during border protec-
tion operations including engineering
defects and sea-worthiness hazards reg-
ularly encountered on boarded vessels.
COMWAR gained insight into and
understanding of the level of interac-
tion between the Navy crews and tris-
"It is pleasing to see all three ser-
vices working hard and so well togeth-
er to achieve the mission," CDRE
Leavy said. "Together with their TSE
colleagues, the crew members con-
Ready to attack Resolute
firmed just how well they have been
able to take on board the professional
training provided by the Sea Training
Unit here in Darwin."
The members of TSE were equally
excited about the chance to deploy on
Resolute and spoke highly of the train-
ing and exposure to operations and
everyday life on board an Armidale-
class patrol boat.
PTE Esthelle Jones, of TSE 70,
said the training had been demanding
but it was a challenge she enjoyed.
"TSE is a very highly sought after
deployment for us; I am very proud
to have been selected for the opportu-
nity," she said.
This collective training and assess-
ment period has been one of many
conducted by STU-MWV during a
high tempo six months.
