Australasian Management Challenge

The Australasian Management Challenge has been run for over 30 years, providing more than a thousand teams over the years the opportunity to develop, both personally and professionally in a very unique learning environment.

Everyone - from experienced team members 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


Challenge your thinking, develop your network and expand your knowledge on local government, management skills and team work ability.

The Australasian Management Challenge is a professional development opportunity for all up and coming staff within council. Specially designed to provide councils in all areas of NSW the opportunity to take part in this truly unique professional development experience, the Challenge develops skills and knowledge that can be immediately applied back to council.


How the Challenge works

Over one day, teams of six come together to compete against other councils in NSW as they are challenged with tasks that stretch their knowledge of local government and their council’s policies and procedures. All tasks are tailored specifically for councils, addressing realistic scenarios faced in the day-to-day management of council operations.
