For DRDC to be successful in implementing its strategy for the future, it needs very capable managers at all levels, including both corporate services and DS managers. Although some leadership and management skills are enduring, the environment in which our managers operate is increasingly complex. DRDC needs to attract and develop managers and allow them to excel at managing around excellence, relevance and impact, in the environment that will result from the successful implementation of the DND ST Strategy. Key skills include agility, flexibility, the ability to handle complexity, the ability to look externally, and the ability to build networks. The objective of the Work Package titled Develop Management Capability was to provide recommendations that could be used to put in place the appropriate development programs to ensure that DRDC has a cadre of excellent managers now and in the future. Although the focus of the activity was on developmental aspects, issues such as workload, administration support, and compensation were also considered to ensure that de- motivators are addressed to the extent possible.
