2005-09 Strategic Program - Annual Review††††

Compiled by:††††††††††††††† Mark Andrews, Strategic & Management Planning Coordinator

Authorised by:†††††††††††† Ross Kingsley, Corporate Development Manager

Strategic Program Term Achievement: A commonly shared long-term vision for the City underpins strategic collaboration and community engagement.

Critical Action: Prepare, implement and review Strategic Plans and processes.

†††††

Purpose:

To review the first 12 months of Council's 2005-09 Strategic Program and discuss with Council the progress in delivering the Program. The report recommends that the information provided be received and that certain amendments be made to the Program.

 

Background

The Strategic Plan is Councilís principal policy document.As such it contains Councilís vision statement and strategic directions for the City. The Plan is expressed in six Master Programs, which together constitute a complete conceptual model of the City and identify those Issues that Council has chosen to address. Longer Term Goals are enunciated for each of those Issues.

 

Council has also adopted a Strategic Program for the period 2005-2009 comprising Term Achievements that define what Council wants to achieve in this term.At the next level of detail, the program identifies a small number of Critical Actions that are to be delivered in order to secure that Term Achievement.

 

The Strategic Program is of particular importance as annual Management Plans are in essence derived from it.

 

To achieve Councilís 2005-2009 Strategic Program, accountability for securing the ambitions of each Issue has been allocated to individual Directors as Ďstewardsí of these strategic goals in keeping with their broad function areas.

 

In addition, responsibility has been allocated to Managers for delivering each Term Achievement and for the Critical Actions that attach to those outcomes. This followed an organisational review of accountabilities which was endorsed by Council.

Key Themes of the Strategic Program

In December 2004, Council adopted the 2005-2009 Strategic Plan for the City and the Strategic Program to deliver it. The present report comments on the progress, achievements and challenges of the first 12 months of that program.

 

In developing the Strategic Plan, Council highlighted certain key themes for emphasis in the organisationís response to the four year program. While recognising that Councilís present strategy continues and builds on many of the principal directions set by previous Councils, it was also seen to reflect a number of new or strengthened themes, such as:

 

The City considered in a broader context and in its metropolitan role, leadership, collaboration and partnering with government, other advocates and the Cityís people;

 

Managing the growth, development and change of places so that they are sustainable and satisfying for those who choose to live there, recognising this need not only for new areas but for our older neighbourhoods;

 

Quality of life for residents, including accessible cultural, social, economic services and access to readily suitable employment;

 

Securing and providing the infrastructure which a growing regional City needs and managing it in a sustainable way;

 

Equipping and managing the organisation to deliver Councilís program effectively in a context of generational change in its workforce, increasing demand for services from Local Government and increasing insistence for local communities to be more involved in decisions which affect them.

 

In addition the Mayor identified a number of priorities that he desired to be advanced during his term of office. These were:

††† Revitalising our neighbourhoods

††† Making our mark globally

††† Finding sustainable solutions to the water crisis

††† Housing for the Aged

 

These were to be used to develop responses to Councilís strategy across Master Programs and to test draft Management Plan proposals as they emerged.

Progress Reporting

According to Councilís established practice, six-monthly progress reports are made to Council on the Strategic Program. Two Policy Review Committee meetings each year are reserved for the purpose of providing this report, making appropriate accompanying presentations and discussing key strategic issues with Council. This is normally directed to March and September of each year, depending on Councilís calendar.

 

Tonightís report and an accompanying presentation by the Directors is the second such progress report on the 2005-2009 Strategic Program.

Format of the Report

The progress review is provided as an Attachment to this report, which will also be published as a separate booklet and made available to the public including through Councilís website.

 

The report is similar in format to the 31 December 2006 Progress Report and is made by commentary by:

 

††† Directors at Issue level

 

††† Managers (authorised by Directors) at Term Achievement level

 

As the first annual report on Councilís four year program, the focus of the review is on both the deliverables achieved to date and detailing for Councilís consideration the direction being pursued for each element of the program.

 

As with the six-month review, the progress report includes the Context of each Term Achievement and its key challenges as assessed by the organisation and commentary on the 34 Issues and 81 Term Achievements. This is drawn from the action plans for the delivery of each Term Achievement which have been established by each of the Term Achievement ĎClusterí teams of Directors and Managers.

 

A comprehensive assessment of the requirements of this Strategic Program was undertaken by the organisation and informed the planning of operations for the remaining term of the program, as well as the Capacity Review outcomes which were confirmed with Council through the 2006-07 Management Plan development.

 

These approaches are serving to define the task ahead for the organisation to secure Councilís strategy for the period to June 2009 and, through the longer-term goals, the future well being of the City.

Commentary from Directors

Each Director has provided a commentary in the report Attachment on progress, challenges and directions within their responsibility areas.

 

This approach has in recent years proven its worth in allowing Council to identify the parts of its platform which needed to be given particular emphasis, accelerated or further funded.

 

The Directors have sought through their commentary on each Issue to indicate in summary what needs to be achieved to satisfy Councilís intent in this area and the approach being taken to address this purpose. An overview is given of key aspects of progress and major challenges.

 

As previously recognised, these reports serve to emphasise that the Directorsí principal function is about delivering strategic outcomes rather than managing operational detail.

 

Directors have reported on the Issues for which they were formally accountable as at 30 June 2006.

Managersí Reporting on Term Achievements

Council previously endorsed the assignment of accountability for Term Achievements in its Strategic Program to Managers. The report reflects those accountabilities and the lifting of the strategic focus and authority of Managers. This has been a direction consistently pursued by Council over recent years in order to fashion a better aligned organisation and one which is well placed to deal with generational change.

 

Directors responsible for the Issue in which the Term Achievement resides have provided their seasoned appreciation of the priorities addressed and approved the relevant Managerís report. This flexibility across traditional reporting lines also reflects the strategy-driven nature of the organisation.

 

All Managers will be in attendance at the meeting, in order to benefit from this discussion with Council as well as to, as appropriate, respond to matters that may be raised by Council relating to particular Term Achievements.

Presentations on Key Challenges and Opportunities

As part of the six month review of the Strategic Program considered by Council on 20 March 2006, Directors made detailed presentations on each of the Master Programs.More recently Council considered the end of year review of the 2005-06 Management Plan.Given that context, the discussion tonight will commence with an introduction by the General Manager, followed by a brief presentation by each Director on key strategic challenges and opportunities within their responsibility areas.

 

The opportunity will be provided for indepth discussion with Council of these significant elements of its overall program along with any aspect of each of the Master Programs.

Refinement of Director Accountabilities

The General Manager has regular meetings with Directors (in company with the Director ~ City Strategy), for the purpose of reviewing progress on the delivery of Issues assigned to Directors. These discussions, together with the context of the Cluster Teamsí assessment of Strategic Program requirements have identified an opportunity for the reassignment the Director Accountability for the following Issue:

 

††† Issue 24. Accessible Public Transport and Regional Road Network

 

As is stated in the Strategic Plan:

Adequate, accessible public transport and roads are vital to the Cityís operation. Council will press the State Government for the delivery of a transport plan and regional roads plan that will support the Cityís efficiency as it grows and matures.

At present, this Issue is placed under the Director ~ City Operations.The related Term Achievement and Critical Actions are all assigned to the Design and Technical Advice Manager and have the intent of seeking to secure the Longer Term Goal of An accessible public transport and regional road network exists.The work program involves significant planning and negotiation with external agencies. Accordingly, agreement has been reached between the relevant Directors with the approval of the General Manager that the Issue will be assigned to the Director ~ City Planning.

Proposed Amendments to the Program

Council made a number of amendments to the Term Achievements and Critical Actions to strengthen and clarify the program and in some cases to respond to changes in external settings when considering the previous 6-Monthly Review in March 2006.

 

In the consideration by management of the requirements of the Strategic Program and the resulting development of delivery plans, a small number of areas have been identified where a further revision is suggested in order to clarify Councilís purpose or to respond more strongly to matters of clearly high priority.

 

It is proposed that, subject to Councilís endorsement tonight, it would be appropriate to make these adjustments to the Term Achievements and Critical Actions subsequent to the period covered by the present report, that is, to take effect from 1 July 2006.

 

These suggested amendments are as follows detailed in Appendix A, with an explanation of each.

 

In addition, Councilís Management Plan for 2006-07 includes a task to review the Strategic Plan framework to incorporate strengthened sustainability principles and measures. This work is well underway and a report on this matter will be presented to a future Policy Review Committee meeting.

Conclusion

The commentary provided in tonightís report can be elaborated on by the responsible Director if required. The comprehensive written report is framed to allow Council to be able to look in more detail at the delivery of its program and provide feedback on directions proposed, as well as testing the overall progress towards key deliverables. The presentation format will provide a natural focus for this discussion.

 

Council set the challenge for the organisation to lift to a higher level of strategic outcome delivery for the City. The scale and depth of this second progress report to Council on its 2005-2009 Strategic Program demonstrates the organisationís growing capacity to do so, in response to Councilís leadership. This capability will be continue to be improved by keen attention to the coordinated planning and delivery of each area of the program and regular forums with Council on the key emerging challenges and opportunities.

Proposed Amendments to Term Achievements and Critical Actions

 

The City as an Economy

 

Issue 22. Growing Economic Centres (DCS)††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

 

A change is proposed to further clarify and streamline the Economy Master Program. The area affected is detailed below:

 

Term Achievement 22.1 ††††††††††† Policies are in place as the basis for directing private and public investments in the City Centres of Penrith and St Marys. (LEDPM)

Critical Action 22.1A†††††††††††††††††† Develop policies that are in keeping with leading practice, encourage diverse development opportunities and deliver the economic elements of the City Centres Review. (LEDPM)

Critical Action 22.1B††††††††††††††††††† Identify Council land holdings that can be used to support economic centres and integrate agreed property developments with City Centre Review strategies. (LEDPM)

Term Achievement 22.2 ††††††††††† The attraction of the City Centres for commercial and residential investment has been benchmarked and policies to consolidate s competitive environment are in place. (LEDPM)

Critical Action 22.2A†††††††††††††††††† Benchmark the attraction of the City Centres for commercial and residential investment and develop and implement policies to consolidate a competitive environment. (LEDPM)

PROPOSED CHANGES:

1) Delete Term Achievement 22.2 with Critical Action 22.2A becoming Critical Action 22.1C under Term Achievement 22.1

REASON:Term Achievement 22.2 is about benchmarking and having the right policy framework in place, which is similar to Term Achievement 22.1.The change consolidates the program activity and reporting without compromising Councilís intentions for this Issue.

 

The City as a Social Place

 

Issue 7. Community Well Being and Social Justice (DS)†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

 

Term Achievement 7.2 ††††† Strategies are in place to respond to the social and health needs of the community (CDM)

 

PROPOSED CHANGE:

Add new Critical Action 7.2E Implement strategies that promote responsible ownership of Companion Animals (WCPM)

REASON: Companion animals social fulfill social needs.Companion animal management is a responsibility of local government and has received increased legislative and regulatory requirements in recent times which warrans specific inclusion in the Strategic Program.
