Understanding that sometimes mixing the ‘green’ and the ‘brown’ makes for a murky colour, a major environmental conservation group appointed Schuster Consulting Group as Project Manager to engage with the Australian pastoral livestock sector.
We were charged with developing a Pastoral Partnership Program to complement the conservation company’s acquisition program and in doing so allow them to significantly extend their ability to promote biodiversity and conservation in rural and regional Australia.
Project management in action
Focused and driven project management methodology was implemented and drew together a diverse range of stakeholders, often with opposing views. A partnership was established that allowed the livestock and conservation sectors to exchange information and work towards commonly understood and agreed goals.
This project has required a diverse range of skills ranging from project management, stakeholder liaison, contract negotiation, logistical management, communication management and general administrative functions.
Into the future
We continue to manage this program and are proud to be involved in environmental stewardship within Australian agriculture.
