Developing Organisational Capabilities

Capability development refers to an organisation’s ability to ensure that its employees are adequately equipped to meet the demands of the positions they are functioning in. Ongoing competency development is a priority for every organisation driven largely as a result of needing to adapt to the rate of organisational change and the need for specialised skill deployment.

SESTO has been involved in capability development for a range of organisations functioning in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors of the economy. Capability development is undertaken in collaboration with organisations after having clearly identified their skills development requirements.

Our proposed development intervention strategy seeks to create or complement desired competency in an identified area of need. These needs are often complex and diverse and consequently requires a customised solution design and innovative delivery interventions.

Examples of our organisational capability development interventions:

Leadership and Governance for Directors. Understanding governance and leadership requirements when acting as a Board member in private, public, and non-for-profit entities. Creating a clear understanding of the regulatory requirements regarding the roles, responsibilities, and accountability of Board members/Directors and Executive Officers.

Project Management Essentials. Project Management workshops for project teams involved in implementing projects. These development workshops step through project principles: project objectives, project planning, risk management and the various drivers throughout the project lifecycle. The workshops are practical and consider barriers to successful project execution and instituting effective project controls to address these impediments to delivering successful projects.

Risk Management Essentials. Our Risk Management Essentials workshops is designed for all levels of staff engaged in project planning and execution. Understanding risk is central to the delivery of projects within the project constraints of time, cost, and quality. Most people in service organisations today are involved with one of multiple projects at any given time, and therefore require an understanding of what constitutes and effective risk management regime. This workshop covers the integrated risk management process - setting risk context, risk identification, risk assessment, risk response / mitigation, risk reporting, and ongoing risk reviews.
