Thanks Alan,

Let me know if you would like some other organisational asset mapping tools/strategies... I'm sure you've had contact with Peter and Jim over the time of moving to a bottom up approach...

Regards,

Dee...

Hi Alan,

Are you linked up with the ABCD Illawarra group or Lighthouse Church or other ABCD practitioners down your way?

Hi Alan,

Welcome to ABCD Asia Pacific. I would love to hear how you are implementing change towards an ABCD approach within council at the moment.

I would love to see all local governments across Australia adopt an ABCD approach across the entire organisation and yes it can be done.

Look forward to chatting with you.

Cheers

Michelle
