Strategic Alliance - Management Development

The Practical People Management Program

Merit Solutions Australia has formed a strategic alliance with Julie Cork and Associates to support the conduct of the Practical People Management Program (PPM) to the public sector in Queensland. This action-learning based program focuses on the development of people management skills, including feedback, conflict management, motivating staff, training and development, managing change, making the transition to management and cultural change.

Public sector participants in PPM also develop an action learning project that focuses on some aspect of their work responsibilities. The project can range from a focus on the individual (e.g.a poor performer or disengaged person), a team (team development) or some aspect of human resource management or operations. The action learning projects can also include developing relations with clients or key stakeholders in external organizations.

Three Merit consultants - Ron Passfield, Angela Bryan and Jane Woodland - are currently working with Julie Cork in the delivery of PPM Program which ranges over 4 to 6 months.
