Policy and strategy

We bring a deep insight and understanding of our clients’ context through our delivery of policy and strategy.

Below are 2 examples of our recent work.

Leadership Territory

The Brown Collective has developed Leadership Territory—a framework to develop educational leaders within the Northern Territory—working with the Education Department’s, Chief Executive Officer.

Understanding the Territory’s unique funding context, we developed a multifaceted response to suit, including building a leadership pipeline with transferable knowledge—and reinforcing the unshakeable place-based belief that the NT is the best place to live, learn and lead.

The Northern Territory Department of Education engaged thebrowncollective to develop its Education Leadership Framework and to provide specialist Executive Principal leadership development programs.

“The Brown Collective provided an excellent professional service that delivered the scope of works on time and to the highest standard. The advice provided has guided the department to shape its leadership strategy to drive positive change.”
