Delivered in Brisbane and Canberra from the 6 to 17 of February 2017, the Award program was delivered to 31 Awardees from three Indonesian ministries working in key areas responsible for implementing a change agenda. The course were designed to enhance the professional skills and knowledge of practical change management to support bureaucratic reform at both at the national planning level and within Indonesia’s National Development Planning Ministry (Bappenas).

Preceded by a three-day Workshop in Indonesia, the Australian program was comprised of expert guest lectures, institutional visits, classroom sessions examining key content, case studies, networking functions and panel sessions with professional counterparts. It included opportunities for Awardees to work through case studies and practical exercises. The incorporation of Echelon I and II Awardees played a unique role in mentoring and supporting other Awardees, whilst visits to key public policy institutions were highly beneficial in terms of benchmarking opportunities and highly positive interactions with senior officers from:

  • Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C);
  • Australian Public Service Commission(APSC); and
  • Australian National Audit Office (ANAO).

The Award program concluded with a two-day Workshop three months after the in-Australia component, the objectives of which were to review implementation of Award Projects, consolidate learning, and look to the future in terms of skills, behaviours and knowledge of policy processes. In light of the success of the training program a subsequent workshop on ‘What it Takes to be a Great Leader’ was delivered to senior Bappenas personnel in Jakarta by UQ Business School Professor Victor Callan which allowed Change Management STA participants to present and exchange ideas on their projects to improve performance management and HR capacity within their organisations.
