Planning workshops help Council decide key activities for the following year(s). This course is designed to equip participants with proven tools to use in the planning workshop(s). By knowing how to plan effectively before the planning workshop, you’re more likely to achieve your objectives. An effective planning process will communicate to all staff and residents a plan of what council is expecting to deliver over the next year(s). Staff involvement at all levels is a key component of a successful planning process however, this can be difficult to achieve when staff feel a disconnect between their daily tasks and the strategic outcomes. The challenge is to ensure that there is a conscious and clear connection between each level of the planning process. In the local government environment, this is about ensuring the cascading down of the council plan to the service level plans and ideally, individual work plans and objectives. It is widely accepted that the more overt this connection, the better the planning outcomes.
This process sounds encouraging in theory but can be difficult to implement in practice for a range of reasons including:
Too many planning workshops don’t have a robust planning framework in place beforehand. Designed by an organisational psychologist this engaging and practical workshop will make your planning day far more effective.
