Policy makers and practitioners – whether employed in the public, private, NGO or Indigenous sectors – have realized the importance of taking a developmental approach when tackling challenging problems in Indigenous and other disadvantaged contexts. They are looking for locally-led solutions to complex problems that supplement and strengthen existing service delivery and funding efforts.

Key topics covered in this course include:

  • Place-based and locally-led approaches
  • Cultural competency in relationships
  • Advanced participatory methods
  • Strengthening community governance
  • Conflict resolution
  • Strengths-based and problem-driven approaches
  • Gendered analysis
  • Political economy stakeholder analysis
  • Adaptive program logics and complexity
  • Data-driven monitoring and evaluation
  • Personal challenges and coping strategies

This course is aligned to several competencies within the Leadership competencies for Queensland framework, in particular those associated with Vision: leads strategically, stimulates ideas and innovation, leads change in complex environments, and makes insightful decisions.
