Bureaucrat backs training move

Bureaucrat backs training move

A SENIOR bureaucrat has defended the move to spend more than $230,000 on senior staff leadership training within the Department of Economic Development.

Department Secretary Norm McIlfatrick said management and leadership development was essential in any modern organisation and he believed strongly in strategic leadership development for his team.

His comments come after it was revealed the Government awarded a contract for $231,475 to high-profile consultancy firm Dattner Grant.

The contract was for a "highly conceptual and outwardly focussed leadership program for "emerging frontline leaders".

Mr McIlfatrick said criticism from Liberals' economic development spokesman Will Hodgman was "fundamentally flawed" as good leadership was essential to fulfilling the department's duty to provide Tasmanian industries and businesses with advice to grow the state's economy.
