It is interesting to note that QR thinks it is an organisation that is on a 'transformative journey'.  Lovely words …. a bit like when they say they have 'scoped the vision' for the track duplication to Nambour.  QR is always in pursuit of the ephemeral.

However, are they beefing up their talent pool in the areas of:

- the development of a truly integrated transport system, and
- management of major projects (presumably, other than CRR)

Does this mean a wrestling back control from TMR of major strategic planning in the area of transport?

And where for art thou TransLink in all of this?

Here are some other things QR could be up to, by turning the handle of the word box mangle ....

QR could:

‘quest for the touchstone of customer satisfaction’
‘seek a synergy between station design and an effective urban habitat’
‘take customer satisfaction to exstacy’
‘redefine what it is to be a railway operator’
‘for each of our employees, make this the best job in their world’

And so on.

EGM Network is a position presently held by Tim Ripper.  I guess Tim must be moving on ...

EGM Projects is a position presently held by Rob McAlpine.  I guess Rob must be moving on ...

https://www.queenslandrail.com.au/aboutus/governance/elt

I doubt it would be a case of positions declared vacant and the present incumbents tasked to apply for the old positions.

 :P

Understand Tim Ripper is retiring after a long career.

Rob McApline has been acting in the position of EGM Projects so it is possible he could apply for the permanent position.

But all does beg the question if we have such an elaborate EGM team at Queensland Rail why do we need rail people at TMR then?

General Manager (Strategic Rail)
Transport and Main Roads (Organisation site)
Strategic Rail Project; Director-General; Brisbane

The Queensland Government is investing significantly in passenger rail to meet the strong rail demand growth expected over the next 10 years in South East Queensland. This includes projects such as Cross River Rail and new generation signalling, which will unlock network capacity and overcome current operating constraints in the core of the public transport network.

As sponsor of these projects, TMR sets the strategic direction for the rail network. TMR is working with other rail organisations so that infrastructure integrates well into the network and maximises customer outcomes.

The position of General Manager (Strategic Rail) requires strong professional leadership, and an ability to foster excellent stakeholder relationships, working across boundaries to drive improvement and change in line with TMR's vision and government priorities. The role requires a demonstrated ability to take a hands-on approach to leading and managing a small, high performing team who work proactively with diverse stakeholders inside and outside the department. The position requires a person with excellent integrity and judgement, and a commitment to the values of the department.

In this role, you will report to the Director-General and work with the Executive Leadership Team to identify opportunities to shape strategic rail outcomes and improve customer outcomes. You will work across teams to influence and implement new approaches in a complex environment. Experience in public sector strategy development, change management in large and complex organisations, and service delivery models would be advantageous.

As a senior executive, your performance will be assessed according to four key accountability perspectives: financial, stakeholder and outcome, internal business and learning and growth.

This role is offered as a Senior Executive Service Contract for a period of up to five years, with the possibility of extension.
