From 1 February 2014, the LDC Board became a joint venture Board of chief executive representatives from member agencies and State Services Commissioner nominees, including the Commissioner, Iain Rennie, who is now the Chair of the LDC Board.
The Board will be working with LDC management to shape up priority areas of focus for LDC, thinking how best they work alongside the State Services Commission and agencies. LDC has a crucial role in supporting and advising chief executives in fulfilling their responsibilities to develop leaders − in line with system and agency needs. See who else is on the Board.
Two of our LDC 2014 Fellows, Janine Dowding (Regional Commissioner for Social Development, Nelson, Marlborough and West Coast, Ministry of Social Development) and Bryan Chapple (General Manager, Strategic Policy, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment) were both awarded Fellowships under the new category that focuses on the Better Public Services key result areas and the topic: Implementing change faster and learning as we go – tolerating and working with uncertainty and ambiguity.
Janine’s study and research will look at the challenges, successes and pitfalls experienced through some big change programmes in the United States.
Bryan will talk to Canadian researchers about findings directly relevant to New Zealand’s economic development, and undertake two strategic leadership courses.
