The training and strategic advisory partner for Defence organisations 

Lumify People provides specialist advice, training and support from the ground up. In one successful engagement, Lumify consultants assisted in automating requisition and replenishment activities as part of a wide range of enhancements to the Defence logistics information system. This project involved working with millions of records to improve workflows to deliver efficiencies and cost savings.

Lumify’s logistics and supply chain experts successfully delivered the project with a phased approach over several months. They were able to streamline the stock requisition and replenishment process with new, efficient and effective workflows to improve supply and reduce costs. Key outcomes included reduced stock delivery time from and between warehouse locations, reduced transportation costs and improved workflows and processes within geographically diverse warehouse locations.

Upskilling for Defence Small Businesses

In today’s rapidly evolving landscape, adaptability is the key to success for Defence Small Businesses. With technological advancements driving change at an unprecedented pace, upskilling has become not just advantageous, but imperative to thrive in the competitive Defence sector.

Upskilling with Lumify People equips Deference Small Businesses with the tools and knowledge necessary to navigate the intricacies of modern Defence procurement processes, ensuring they remain relevant and competitive in a constantly evolving market. Whether it’s mastering emerging technologies, honing project management skills, or understanding complex regulatory frameworks, upskilling empowers businesses to deliver innovative solutions that meet the ever-changing demands of Defence stakeholders. Investing in upskilling also fosters a culture of innovation, drives continuous improvement and enhances businesses’ abilities to adapt to future challenges. By fostering a highly skilled workforce, Defence Small Businesses will not only enhance their own capabilities but also contribute to the overall strength and resilience of the overall Defence ecosystem.

Lumify People is committed to helping Defence Small Businesses stay afloat and stay ahead. Lumify People General Manager, Kenneth Hoppe has also been appointed to the Victoria Committee of the Australian Industry & Defence Network (AIDN). This appointment sees him involved with programs that advocate for, represent, network with and provide member services to the nation’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the defence and security sectors. With this expansive knowledge, expertise and network, Lumify People can help more Defence Small Businesses seize opportunities, overcome obstacles and thrive in an increasingly competitive landscape, ultimately ensuring their continued relevance success in the defence sector.

Boosting skills and confidence of individual personnel 

Lumify also supports individual Defence personnel to upskill through programs like the MSSA Program and the Lumify Defence Academy.

The MSSA program is a 17-week intensive program run in conjunction with Microsoft. The program aims to equip veterans with in-demand technology skills and make the transition from military service to civilian employment smoother.

On top of the technical curriculum, veterans receive professional development opportunities, allowing them to engage with industry mentors and get guidance in career planning and developing skills.

Veteran and former MSSA participant Matt Spencer completed the program in 2022 and later took a position at Microsoft as a Software Engineer following a 14-year career in the Australian Defence Force (ADF). According to Matt, the most significant challenge the course helped him overcome was understanding how the corporate side of business works compared to the rigid structures and career paths of military life.

“Understanding how to market yourself on platforms like LinkedIn and write a strong resume is really useful,” he says.

The Lumify Defence Academy includes a wide range of IT courses that veterans can access. This program is beneficial for those transitioning to civilian life. Interested personnel may confirm if they are eligible for Career Transition Training as part of the Defence Force Transition Program, providing up to $5,320 in financial support.

For Defence veterans, a career in IT helps leverage existing skills. Individuals can earn qualifications to validate experience or choose the next Advanced level course. Personnel with minimal IT experience can speak with Lumify about training options to help launch their careers.

Whether it is to meet organisational outcomes or personally increase skills, look to Lumify People for support when it comes to thriving in today’s complex digital environment.
