1 2020 LOOKING FORWARD its all about talent management John Ravlic Chief Executive LGMA National

2 Key Messages Local government (LG) is big business LG is in the business of meeting community needs – community development and infrastructure provision Governments are dealing with complex and competing priorities and increasingly LG is missing out With the backlog of infrastructure and the service needs of a growing population there are significant expectations on LG Skills shortages, labour shortages and just plain people shortages will cause talent management headaches for LG Ageing of the workforce will require LG to overhaul HR and knowledge management policies and practices Incremental improvement of a percentage point here and there will not be enough to sustain LG into the future - Productivity Business as usual will not save LG – a new mind set is required to resolve issues affecting sustainability, talent and ageing
