The Taskforce Toolkit is a practical guide developed to help APS taskforces to achieve good outcomes – both in terms of policy and administration.
Developed by PM&C's Policy Projects and Taskforce Office, the content of the Toolkit is based on the experiences of hundreds of staff across the APS at all levels who've worked on taskforces. The Toolkit supports work on the different stages of taskforce processes – whether it's setting it up, getting the work done, or closing it down and handing work over.
How to use the Toolkit
The Toolkit is divided into seven topics, each containing supporting resources like templates and checklists.
The content is grouped thematically and topics can be read independently of each other.
Each topic is broken down into the following:
- Basic principles of taskforce work
- Common problems experienced by taskforces
- Tips for success
- Handy tools.
The Toolkit will be updated and refined in line with user needs. This is a live beta version of the Taskforce Toolkit and we welcome any feedback and suggestions via email to mobility [at] apsc.gov.au.
