    Plans and budgets          planning and delivery of core new initiatives
        aligned to new        • Continue to build organisation capacity and
            priorities         shift our culture including “1ASC “ as part of
     • Commence next          restructured ASC aligned to the new direction
  steps in organisational       • Clarify future direction of AASC program
  change: re-structuring
   and capacity building

    May – Jun 2010          Jul – Sep 2010                       Oct – Dec 2010

                            Development of key national strategies:
                            • Sport and Education
                            • Volunteers in sport
                            • Sport and Social Inclusion

                            System leadership strategies
                    What are we seeking?

• Identify which sports should be targeted for investment
  to maximise the impacts reflected in the objectives
   – Objectives ultimately derived from the new National Sport and
     Active recreation Policy Framework
   – Need to assume some interim objectives for the first iteration : these
     informed by Ministerial Charter letter and State and Territory
• Need to define criteria to determine the priority sports
   – Existing ASC criteria need to be reviewed cognisant of the interim
       • sports excellence : international competition results and planning capacity/ cap
       • sports relevance : participation level and cultural significance
       • sports effectiveness: governance, management and financial viability
   – New criteria likely to differ for high performance and participation
    Some considerations re criteria

• How should international success be defined?
• Should capacity to self fund be a consideration?
• Should all criteria be equally weighted?
• Is the current weighting afforded Olympic sports
  appropriate going forward?
• How should membership (current participation)
  be measured?
• Should we adopt different objectives and criteria
  (weighting) for high performance pre 2012 and
  post 2012?
 Concluding thoughts

1. We have been given the opportunity to take Australian
   sport to the next level – we need to think sport and
2. We are at the beginning of a new collaborative planning
   process which will require tolerance for ambiguity,
   agility, trust, and understanding that we have some
   critical timelines to hit in the first iteration of this new
3. We should think from an integrated not individual
   jurisdiction perspective- both planning and program
   delivery: “whole of system contribution focus”
 Concluding thoughts

4. It is critical to secure strong NSO-SSO alignment,
   particularly around NSO strategic plans: this has
   implications for both governance, culture and
5. It is likely that ASC will strengthen performance review
   and accountability requirements for funding as a part of
   the “new world”
