About the workshop
Integrated Strategic Planning and Decision Making – Applied is a recurring workshop for those with prior experience with annual planning and resourcing processes, moving beyond basic foundations to explore how mutual success between Council and the administration can be fostered and achieved.
The workshop includes a more nuanced exploration of 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 with experience in leadership roles, including coordinators and early career managers, to corporate planning and performance management professionals.
The six-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.
