I cannot recommend The Yellow Company highly enough. Their exceptional stakeholder management and ability to assimilate and understand our complex organisation and people within it was vital to the successful rollout of our Right Fit for Risk (RFFR) project. The Yellow Company took the time to understand our project on all levels, and their expertise in content, change management, and internal communications were invaluable. As a diverse and complex NFP organisation, we felt that Yellow truly understood our needs and has similar social values to us, which made all the difference in the project’s success. Due to their outstanding work on the RFFR project, we have engaged the Yellow Company as our trusted project management advisor for our 2023 re-brand. This is a critical project for the success of WDEA Works’ future, and we have no doubt that Yellow will help us get it right. Thank you, Yellow Company, for your exceptional work and expertise!

I would like to express the outstanding governance The Yellow Company provided on the Future Drought Fund Regional Drought Resilience Planning project. Governance is a crucial element to the successful delivery of a project. Through the structure, processes and decision-making models established by The Yellow Company, the pilot round of this project has been given every opportunity to effectively accomplish defined milestones within the Project Management Plan. Through establishment of clearly defined roles and responsibilities within project coordination, planning and control, The Yellow Company has supported equitable and inclusive collaboration between the many stakeholders involved at varying levels of the project. The governance employed by The Yellow Company has fostered continual review and improvement of the project which has been critical to the success of the pilot round as well as providing a solid foundation for the next stage.

Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Director - Drought Policy and Response
I was part of the engagement team for two regions within Round 1 of the Regional Drought Resilience Planning project. Trying to engage on drought when much of the region was flooding proved challenging!  As a result, The Yellow Company and team were able to support me as the engagement person on the ground and take elements of our engagement online. This allowed the project to continue on time, ensure that people were able to access the information and provide input to the early stages of the plan. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with The Yellow Company team. They managed to deliver a complex project under challenging time frames with a state-wide group of people, no small feat!

The team has analysed complex work areas with many interrelated activities and their honesty in forecasting, managing and overcoming any potential risks or issues has strongly supported the continued positive trajectory of the Regional Drought Resilience Planning project. Our team thoroughly enjoy working with The Yellow Company and wish to thank them for continuing to provide value and deliver in all areas of management for this project.

The Yellow Company was the project manager for the development of Regional Development Resilience Plans (RDRPs) across five regions. The project was of immense complexity and the stakeholder engagement was critical. The successful engagement of over 120 stakeholders in a very short period of time was attributable to the excellent project management and stakeholder engagement provided by The Yellow Company, especially given the timeframes, the multi-layered accountability processes from State and Federal Governments, the diversity of stakeholders and complexity of the different aspects of the project. Without hesitation, The Yellow Company has demonstrated excellent leadership in project management.
Hurriyet Babacan, Professor
Rural Economies Centre of Excellence, Research Director
