The Australasian Management Challenge has been run for the past 25 years, providing more than a thousand teams over the years the opportunity to develop, both personally and professionally in a very unique learning environment.


Who Should Enter?


Every council in Australia and New Zealand should have at least one team participating in the Challenge. Very small councils should consider participating through the formation of a composite team with a neighbouring authority.

Teams of five or six can be made up of people from any discipline or hierarchy. You may invite an experienced manager or team leader, a member of the IT department, librarians and other community service staff. Each task is designed to ensure every member of every team comes away with new and practical insights into excellence in leadership and management.

Everyone - from experienced managers to emerging leaders - comes away with new and practical insights into excellence in leadership and management.

More than any other traditional training program or seminar, the LG Professionals Australia Australasian Management Challenge assists councils to:

  • Attract and retain staff
  • Improve organisational culture
  • Promote team-work
  • Develop new and sustainable management skills
  • Breakdown silos
  • Grow inter-departmental relationships, and
  • Build capacity
