Randwick is identified as a Collaboration Area in the Greater Sydney Commission’s Metropolis of Three Cities due to its potential for increased productivity and innovation associated with the specialist health, education and research institutions located there. The 2018 Randwick Place Strategy recognised governance was key to optimising place outcomes, but that no single structure existed to pursue all of the actions it identified. In 2019, the RCA Group formed to explore governance structures and related actions together and appointed ConnellGriffin as Program Director.
The RCA Group wanted an independent Program Director to advise on appropriate governance structures, coordinate activities and develop relationships to build capacity for pursuing priority outcomes together.
The primary challenge is for RCA Group members to allocate enough time and internal resources towards joint activities that support the outcomes envisaged in the Randwick Place Strategy. While RCA Group members are closely aligned around several priority outcomes, inevitable conflicts arise where interests compete or policy positions differ. In this context, the key issue for successful collaboration is to find ways to share each member’s perspective and enable the Group to connect related staff and overlapping work so that, by working together, the members can pool resources or attract external funding and support from new partners to scale outcomes.
