EPM 5500 FUNDAMENTALS OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT
INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT BRIEF ~ SEM 1, 2017
Charting a course for the future of a city is a daunting prospect. Cities are complex ecosystems, shared places that make space for each of us to find our own way – together. More daunting still is the invitation to consider the future of Melbourne, a city renowned for its liveability, when change is the only certainty. The City of Melbourne knows well these challenges, yet must make choices that will shape the city’s future. Over recent years, the City of Melbourne has sought to involve its community in making these choices, moving beyond the traditions of elected officials and community consultation to processes that capture and respect the voices of its citizens. These views framed the task of the Future Melbourne citizens’ jury, a diverse group of 52 people broadly representative of the Melbourne community. Over six weeks, several long days of deliberation and ongoing discussions online, the group was challenged to respond to just one question: How should the Future Melbourne vision, goals and priorities be refreshed to prepare our city for the next decade?
