Apex will also undertake a review and identification of how behavioral insights can be leveraged to achieve the LRA’s strategy and, in particular, the Tax Modernization project and all its element; Apex will develop and recommend a behavioral insights framework to provide leverage towards the achievement of the strategy as well as understand the LRA execution framework as encapsulated by the 4DX system (The 4 disciplines of Execution) and integrate the behavioral insights into the execution framework. Additionally, Apex Consulting will provide training and guidance to the leadership of the Authority on behavioral insights framework and the practical application of these elements to enhance the achievement of the strategy.
