How do you get a skilled and capable workforce to support a responsive, accountable, effective and efficient local government system? Where do you start?

Good question. It is easy to say you need to focus and do some capacity building and aligned training, but where do you start? Also, if you do these things, will the impact address the strategic needs and challenges? 

Or alternatively, how do you enable staff to be functional and capable of performing their functions or services optimally and sustainably? Whatever you do needs to be effective, transparent and accountable in an environment of mutual trust and good faith, fostering friendly relationships and supporting and assisting one another.
I believe the time is right to go back to do some basics right. You need to have adequate integrated development plans, sound corporate governance with no blurring of the line between different roles, solid communication and labour relations, and experienced people. 
First of all you have to take stock of functionality of performance of adequate service delivery and progress with support, capacity building and all training interventions. And then take the seven courageous discussions seriously and implement them.
