About the workshop
Integrated Strategic Planning and Decision Making – Foundation is a recurring workshop for those with limited or no experience in working with annual planning and resourcing processes.
The workshop explores the foundations of this planning, including the requirements of the Local Government Act 2020 and how to create the conditions for success for both Council and the administration.
The workshop is suited to local government officers moving into or aspiring to management roles, including supervisors and early-stage coordinators, and corporate planning and performance management officers.
The four-hour workshop explores the role of Councillors, the executive, and the administration in the context of the Integrated Strategic Planning and Reporting Framework from the Act, highlighting the role of effective, respectful, and strong relationships in building a constructive culture focused on outcomes.
Participants learn important frameworks within strategic planning and reporting, exploring the role of Council as the elected authority and governing body, the administration as principal advisor and facilitator, as well as issues like mandate, legitimacy, public value, and public interest.
