The Rural Management Challenges are based on the successful concept of the Australasian Management Challenge; and is a development programme that provides real-life problem solving experiences and produces outcomes that translate into relevant, tangible and enduring benefits for individuals, teams and the organisation.

Councils nominate a team of four people (who may or may not have worked together before) to compete against teams within their region.

Throughout the day, the team will be given a range of tasks that simulate different business-related tasks and activities that council manages on a day-to-day basis. As some of these tasks or issues may be outside the team members’ usual role, it provides the perfect opportunity to broaden the understanding and appreciation of what council does and what other people within your council manage every day.

It also provides a perfect opportunity to develop and strengthen your team skills. This includes communication and presentation skills, influencing and negotiation skills and managing resources and time. All within a fun and highly supportive environment.

The teams are observed throughout the day on their team processes – how well they worked together, how they resolved differences of opinion, how they ensured that they kept on track and managed the tasks. The teams are also assessed on what they produce (e.g. reports etc.).

Rural Management Challenges are held in three areas and usually occur during October to November of each year.
