Victorian public service employees can attend Collabforge Collaboration Masterclasses at no cost – register now or read on to learn more.

We recently partnered with the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority (VMIA) to provide Collaboration Masterclasses to the Victorian Public Service. Driven by the need for collaboration to identify and manage inter-agency risks effectively, VMIA wanted to help their clients increase their capability to work together across departments and agencies. Managing inter-agency risk well is critical and involves a lot of complexity, and we reasoned that a strong baseline ability to collaborate would go a long way.

VMIA are offering another three sessions this year, available to any Victorian Public Service employee. Eligible participants are encouraged to register quickly to secure a spot in the upcoming sessions:

Wednesday 24 August, 8.45am – 1pm Register

Thursday 13 October, 8.45am – 1pm Register

Tuesday 22 November, 8.45am – 1pm Register

Collabforge’s vision is a world in which “everyone has the capability to collaborate successfully to realise their individual and collective desired futures.” That means helping you deliver your collaboration capability however we can. Usually we’ve done this through action learning – helping our clients collaborate to solve real and pressing needs. While this approach has been critical to expanding our knowledge, we’ve long seen the potential of a collaboration curriculum to amplify our efforts.

Collabforgers Mark Elliott and John Hibble worked with VMIA staff to design and deliver a half day workshop experience that provided usable ideas and theories through hands-on group activities involving Lego and “how to make toast”. VMIA committed to run four sessions, and Mark and John committed to making improvements in each successive session. The iterative design approach paid off; by the end, participants were describing the experience as “world class”.

We hope you can join us! Register now.
