Addressing Wicked Government Issues – Canberra Dec 2

Doing business in Government is getting tougher …

The world is fast becoming interconnected, more uncertain and increasingly complex in ways previously unimagined. Coupled with the demand to consistently do more with less, the challenge dramatically increases.

We know that the methods that worked in the past are no longer working as well and sometimes not at all, as patterns of activity and behavior continue to shift and change. We can no longer afford to stay within the perceived safety of the way things have always been done.

All is not lost however ....

Organisations that are struggling to keep pace with this complexity can apply a range of contemporary approaches to help make sense of their shifting landscapes so that more meaningful action becomes possible. With the increased insight provided by these approaches an organisation increases its agility and its ability to adapt to the uncertain and shifting environment.

In Complex situations we need to manage the potential of the present by thoughtfully navigating our way forward, rather than putting plans in place for an idealised future state that in all likelihood never be attained or remain relevant over time. This session will provide participants with new approaches to enable improved navigation of our uncertain Government & community environments.

The session will also highlight the benefits of applying complexity based approaches, which include the ability to overcome inertia with wicked issues and do so at a dramatically reduced cost.

Complexity based approaches afford us the benefit of working in ways that are more akin to how we naturally operate as human beings , rather than how we tend to operate in rigid corporate hierarchies.

This session will provide participants with a range of methods to increase their ability to navigate and gain traction on their complex issues, so that pragmatic and more cost effective action can evolve and progress can be implemented. The learnings will incorporate many case studies including the ground-breaking health prevention work in this field currently being undertaken by Victoria’s Department of Health.
