It is becoming increasingly important for council employees, regardless of level, to make effective decisions under multiple constraints in uncertain and highly dynamic environments.Some decisions require and allow thorough data gathering and analysis, others are made based on an educated guess or driven by intuition.
This program has been specifically developed to build on skills and knowledge of local government employees to expand and develop strong decision-making capabilities within a complex and fast changing environment.
With a balanced mix of critical thinking, problem solving, influence and psychology, you will expand your mindset and acquire specific practical decision making skills.
Registrations at our events and programs are open to Local Government Professionals Australia, SA members, council employees, employees of regional subsidiaries and Local Government Professionals Australia, SA invited guests unless specified otherwise on the event or program brochure.
This workshop is presented to you by the LG Professionals, SA Community Managers Network.
