STEERED BY THE STRATEGIC PLANNING COMMITTEE
The concerted, organisation-wide effort was led and coordinated by the Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) formed by the Governor, and composed of 5 senior executives from the management of the MMA.
Although the planning process was driven by the SPC, the input of the entire employee base was deemed of critical importance, right from the outset. The first drafts of strategies and action plans were formulated in close consultation with working groups of junior and middle management employees from each operational area of the MMA.
To provide opportunities for employee contribution and collaboration, we conducted discussion forums which were attended by the Governor and the MMA’s Executive Committee. The purpose of these forums was to identify general strategic direction and the priority developmental areas.
In order to stimulate constructive dialogue on the initial drafts prepared by the working groups, we also conducted several workshops at which technical staff from respective areas presented thematic papers on identified projects and strategies.
EXTERNAL EXPERT CONSULTATION
We enlisted the expertise of a technical assistance mission from the International Monetary Fund, who conducted a 2-week review of the plan and provided their recommendations.
LOCAL STAKEHOLDER CONSULTATION
We also held consultative meetings with the financial sector and other key relevant stakeholders to identify their views and concerns before finalising our plan.
