SOLGM Annual Summit 2018

Critical decision-making in times of uncertainty: A workshop for chief executives and senior managers

Sick of going around in circles on critical issues? Lots of good ideas to choose from, but no agreement on which projects to proceed with? Do your Councillors decide something at one meeting, only to relitigate at the next?

2018 has seen a flurry of ideas, proposals and innovation across the local government sector, with the development of work programmes for the Long-Term Plan 2018-28 and the announcement of a 3 billon dollar Provincial Growth Fund.

With increasing responsibilities and limited resources, making smart decisions about where to focus our attention is critical – but navigating through political and internal tensions, pet projects and public feedback to secure this focus is no easy task.

Alicia McKay is a thought leader in this space, working with public agencies and councils to make strategic policy and investment decisions. This workshop is packed full of insight into how to make smarter choices that will deliver lasting impact in your communities. From defining potential opportunities to critically evaluating options for the future, anyone interested in decision frameworks should attend. This workshop will particularly interest chief executives and senior managers tasked with leading strategic prioritisation processes for their teams or elected members.
