About the workshop

In light of significant changes to its operating environment, the APS is reassessing many of its traditional approaches to solving problems. The current landscape is characterised by significant uncertainty, complexity and changing citizen needs and expectations. This environment is testing APS governance structures, workforce skills and organisational capacity.

Strategic thinking brings the big picture into focus. It helps to make visible the connections between multiple causes, stakeholders and interdependencies that are at play within many of the ‘wicked problems’ that leaders face. It is the responsibility of leaders to recognise critical trends and patterns in their internal and external environments shaping the future. Strategic thinking is an evolving skill and will remain a key competency to enable the transformational leadership required to steer the APS through the challenging times ahead.

This course has been designed for EL1-2 banded leaders in the APS who are seeking to expand their existing skills to deal with problems on a strategic level. The tools applied in this course will contribute to improved strategic insight and greater confidence overall in developing evidence-solutions to problems that will bring about lasting change for the better.
