An essential opportunity for managers

Public Sector Commission

Management essentials is a series of modules delivered as individual workshops, aimed at mid-level managers across the WA public sector. Registrations are currently open for:

  • Managing change
  • Managing people
  • Managing risk
  • Managing self
  • Critical thinking.

Developed in 2014, these modules provide managers with skills and tools to equip them to better manage during a time of public sector constraint within a tough economic environment. Operating within this context presents challenges for the delivery of services while managing community expectations. Mid-level managers at the front line of the sector’s services play a significant role in meeting these challenges.

In response to the demand for more effective service delivery—working smarter with less—the sector is focused on improving performance and productivity. Ethical conduct, good governance, workforce management and workforce planning are all integral to achieving high performance across the sector, and ensuring the ongoing delivery of high quality services to the community.

Management essentials empowers managers at Levels 4-6 to make good decisions and lead from where they are, positively impacting the performance of their team, agency and the wider public sector.

A number of workshops are scheduled for February and March 2017, delivered by the Public Sector Commission at Dumas House, 2 Havelock Street, West Perth. Registration is essential and can be completed through the events page on the Commission’s website.
