Engineers Australia’s (EA) new organisational construct, EA College of Leadership and Management, was established to reconnect EA with engineers who have moved into leadership and management roles that have not found a professional home in EA’s eight other Colleges.

With the Board recently appointed and the College in its infancy, Andrew Wisdom was brought in to facilitate the Board’s first meeting, to drive the creation of a clear strategy and road map for the College to ensure it is on track to play a meaningful role for engineers.

Andrew developed and delivered the workshop agenda and drafted outcomes. The workshop generated a clear direction for the Board, portfolios of responsibility for each of the Board members, agreed actions and short to medium-term targets.

In the space of an intense day, the Board went from having done no more than putting their hand up to be involved, to being aligned on the bones of a strategy and an implementation programme.
