A re-energised committed core group have agreed to launch a six-month experiment in agile strategy with their first 30/30 meeting in January 2017 and had four pathfinder projects lead by different teams including participating in a major event in May.

Representatives of different local Chambers first workshopped the intent and approach of the Sunshine Coast Chamber Alliance with Strategic Doing founder Ed Morrison and key contacts from Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast, Sunshine Coast Council last 28 November 2016.

The group’s framing question was “Imagine that over the next three years, the Regional Alliance assists the Sunshine Coast to become nationally recognised as the entrepreneurship capital of Australia. What would that look like?”

The Sunshine Coast is 90 kilometres north of Brisbane, the capital of the state of Queensland, Australia. It has a population of 290,000 and is dominated by micro (0-4 employees) to small business (5 to 19 employees) and has 16 independent Chambers of Commerce throughout the region. The Sunshine Coast Chamber Alliance brings together these 16 groups to be the collective voice of over 30,000 businesses.
