Forsythes Training is helping the newly created Central Coast Council set its staff up for success in project management, which is so vital for the organisation’s future success. When Wyong and Gosford Councils merged in May 2016, a strategic review of roles and skills sets against the new organisation’s priorities was undertaken. A full training needs analysis was the natural next step after restructuring. Council’s Learning and Development Lead Specialist, Colette Marsden, says project management was one of the key skills gaps identified as staff were required to do more project based work across a bigger organisation and Council area while still maintaining and even improving service delivery to its community.
