The issues that public sector organisations are asked to solve are becoming increasingly complex, often involving multiple actors and stakeholders, and without clear 'right or wrong' answers.
We, in the public sector, may find ourselves longing for earlier times when the issues were ‘just’ fiendishly complicated, and we could command and control the solutions. But contemporary government at national and local level frequently involves new kinds of issues for which an entirely new range of approaches and frameworks are required.
We need to do things differently, not just better.
Fortunately, systems thinking and behavioural sciences offer us a range of practical and useful tools and techniques with a public value focused mind set which can help us define, analyse and collaboratively solve today’s and tomorrow’s wicked problems.
In this workshop, Dr Nick Fleming draws on his 20-plus years of international experience to bring a fresh, insightful and empowering approach to solving problems in government.
“Designing and delivering a government policy or project is typically a complex problem,” Dr Fleming says. “I want to share what I know about complementary techniques that help to better conceive and implement realistic, lasting solutions.”
Executives, managers and officers – This workshop is for those aiming to practice innovative problem-solving strategies in the public sector, local government and not-for-profit. Public sector executives, managers and officers are also welcomed to enhance their understanding of problem-solving techniques and skills to tackle complex situations and create a lasting change.
