Rural Management Challenge
What is the the Rural Management Challenge?
The LG Professionals SA Rural Management Challenge is a sophisticated developmental program that produces relevant, tangible and enduring benefits for your people, your teams and your Council. Councils enter teams of four staff from any level or area. These teams compete to complete a variety of tasks that simulate different activities that council manage on a day-today basis. As some of these tasks or issues may be outside the team members’ usual role, it provides the perfect opportunity to broaden their understanding of different areas of the organisation. Areas covered may include risk, finance, community consultation, human resources, marketing and communications and more. Previous tasks have included role plays, reports, presentations, mock media interviews and team swaps.
The winning team will receive 6 tickets (for 4 team members, their mentor & CEO) to attend the 2022 Leadership Excellence Gala Awards Dinner where they will be officially presented with the winner's trophy.
Expressions of Interest close Friday 30 July
The 2021 event has tentatively been scheduled to be held on Thursday 18 November 2021 in the Adelaide CBD.
If we receive commitment from eight Councils the event will be viable, and registrations will open on Monday 2 August 2021 (closing on Friday 17 September 2021) with a Pre-Challenge Task released in late September/early October 2021.
