A hardworking team from the City of Kwinana has come out on top after being pitched against other Local Governments in the WA level of Local Government Professional’s Australasian Management Challenge.

The Management Challenge is a simulation-based team building, learning and networking program using real local government themes – the types of issues that a senior management team in a Council would most likely face.

Teams responded to a series of tasks in a unique, one-day, “pressure cooker” environment.

Chief Executive Officer Wayne Jack said the ice-cream loving team known as the Kwinana Splits had truly done the City proud, securing back-to-back wins for the City.

“This is believed to be the first time that any local government has won WA’s title back-to-back,” Mr Jack said.

“Kwinana also won the challenge in 2009 and secured second place in the National Final that year.

“This is a true testament to the City, the quality of our staff, and the culture intentionally fostered here in Kwinana,” he said.

Mr Jack said congratulated Gosnells as runner up, and the participating Cities of Bayswater, Busselton, Gosnells, Joondalup, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Mandurah, Nedlands, Subiaco, Vincent and Wanneroo; the Shire of Mundaring and the Towns of Cambridge (two teams), Port Hedland and Victoria Park.

“The Kwinana team will now represent WA in Brisbane on 5 August, competing for the top title across Australia and New Zealand,” he said.
