Oracle eBS Support Transformation


Leighton Contractors has operations spanning Australia, Asia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea and employs about 24,600 people, delivering and supporting about 160 projects. It delivers projects across the construction spectrum, from project management to build, own and operate.


The Oracle Solution Management (OSM) team was established in late 2014 to centralise all support for Leighton Contractor’s Oracle EBS solution (and some other applications, both COTS and bespoke). The application footprint OSM supports is quite large and has a base of around 10,000 users.


Upon its creation, OSM was confronted with a large backlog of service incidents and problems, and a correspondingly unhappy user population. Significant steps had been taken to address the situation and results were beginning to appear. However, the team was still grappling with issues relating to user competence, incident management productivity and employee motivation and satisfaction.
