Management Essentials: Managing Change

Public Sector Commission

Event outline

The Centre for Public Sector Excellence is pleased to bring you our new Management Essentials workshops. Management Essentials incorporates a series of modules aimed at managers (levels 4-6) across the WA public sector.

Change needs to be made and sponsored from the frontline. This module aims to provide managers with a greater awareness of the drivers of change and practical strategies to become a more effective change agent in their own jurisdiction.

During this module, participants will:

  • examine change in the public sector arising from the policy agenda, economic landscape, machinery of government, technology, demographics, community expectation and accountability
  • discuss the role of the change agent in supporting reform in the public sector environment
  • critically analyse how to best contribute to the change process as a manager or supervisor: lessening the negative, harnessing the positive within their own sphere of influence
  • use case studies and scenarios to better understand leading change from ‘where you are’ to improve problem-solving, foster innovation and manage governance at ‘grassroots’
  • outline a range of good managerial practices to focus on people throughout the change process: communicating, consulting and coaching with team and individual.
