About the session
The only constant is change: how community services can build capabilities and drive change amid uncertainty
(Speaking with Jane Moreton)
In a policy and funding environment of constant uncertainty and change, how effectively a NFP can develop greater capacity – whether to align itself with a new policy direction, service system or funding requirements – depends on its capacity to adapt and evolve.
This session will outline the knowledge and tools you need to successfully implement change to develop the capacity of your organisation, including: how to approach change and transition in dynamic environments; dealing with resistance to change; developing the capacity of your workforce; partnerships with other agencies; involving consumers, carers and the community; and how to sustain and monitor a change strategy.
