Project management is a fundamental skill in our modern workforce, as it ensures that what is being delivered is not only right, but that it also delivers against the business opportunity - so it's important that we get it right.
This one-day program is designed to cover the basic principles of managing projects to help you plan, control and organise activities to ensure that you are delivering successful projects every time. It is best suited for staff who may be new to managing projects or have not previously undertaken any formal project management training before.
Join us for our upcoming General Managers Network Forum: Delivering Public Good.
Welcome to the first General Managers Network Forum of 2020. This year, within the context of significant change in the sector, combined with diminishing community trust and respect in government, our theme will be focussed on how we as General Managers and Directors can help build a collaborative approach to demonstrating the public good that our sector provides to our communities. This needs to reflect on our passion for providing services to our communities with integrity and transparency.
Based on this theme, our first session is to focus on the newly released SA Productivity Commissioner's report into local government costs and efficiency.
One of the fundamental recommendations from the Commissioner's report is the creation of an online, sector-wide performance measurement and reporting system for councils, with an emphasis on creating a culture of continuous improvement and increased transparency.
The Commissioner noted some of the excellent work occurring in our sector, particularly the benchmarking collaboration between the Marion, Port Adelaide Enfield and Charles Sturt councils. Accordingly, our guest speakers at this forum are Paul Sutton, CEO of the City of Charles Sturt who will present on the benchmarking process and what it means for the sector; and the Presiding Commissioner, Dr Matthew Butlin, who will provide an overview of his report and answer questions.

This highly interactive program addresses the word 'team' as a verb (to team) rather than the traditional treatment as a noun (the team). The focus is not on what teams are, but on what ultra-successful teams do.
Trust and collaboration play a vital role in delivering results to our communities. The conference program will look at trust through the lens of ourselves, our teams and our communities, as well as exploring the vital role trust plays in successful collaborations. With increasing pressure to deliver efficiencies and work smarter, we cannot deliver results without these two essential ingredients. The aim is for the day to is be uplifting, educational, positive and inspiring.

Many leaders find conversations about performance to be difficult and too often avoid them altogether. Providing feedback, particularly when a team member’s performance falls short of expectations is one of the most critical functions a leader performs. Yet for many this is one of the most dreaded and avoided.
This program enables participants to develop skills and confidence in holding these conversations in an easy and comfortable environment. Participants are provided opportunities to engage with a new and contemporary approach. They will prepare for effective performance conversations in their workplace.
