Details and register

The Management Challenge has been run annually for more than 25 years and is the most enduring, successful, targeted professional development program for local government. Many former participants and mentors have gone on to become senior council executives. A large number of current CEOs are former Management Challenge participants. The Management Challenge is a simulation-based team building, learning and networking program using real local government themes – the types of issues that a senior management team in a council would most likely face. The teams are challenged to respond to a series of tasks in a unique one-day, fast paced, “pressure cooker” environment. Some tasks will require written responses (such as a council report or recommendation document), some will take the form of role plays or presentations and the teams are also scored on observations of how well they display energy, synergy, effectiveness and creative thinking.
