Challenge

Some entities in the government organizations of Bahrain had its own strategy while others did not, and it was necessary to make sure all the entities had their individual strategies, and that they were all working towards the same vision. Recognizing this need, the Cabinet entrusted the Civil Service Council with the mission of establishing an overall strategy for the government, suiting the current situation with emphasis on raising the efficiency and effectiveness in the government.

The Civil service Bureau took on its shoulder the responsibility of executing this task for the Civil Service Council and translating the cabinet direction into a reality and implemented system. The CSB was entrusted with this task and in order to track organizational performance or ‘Takamul’ (integration/collaboration), the CSB wanted to make sure that all the entities were targeting the same vision, speaking the same language and terminology, and using the same methodology.

They used the Balanced Scorecard methodology at the government level as well as in all the entities. The CSB had already seen some entities going through this process without having any software to track and manage their progress and fail; and realized that the support of technology is critical for the success of this project. A major challenge that CSB faced was having a system which could handle lots of data, cascade and link strategies of the entities, and enable collective effort towards the one main strategy at the government level.

Solution

The Civil Service Bureau wanted a state-of-the-art performance management system which is integrated, easy and user-friendly. After their selection process, they decided to go with the Corporater system because of its user-friendly interface, regional presence and being one of the top software in the balanced scorecard field. They wanted to cascade the corporate strategy of the government of Bahrain to the sectoral and ministry levels and eventually to the individual levels at a later stage, and link it to the employee’s performance management system “ADDA”. Their main target was to implement a system that would help each entity to support each other to achieve the government vision. Using Corporater, CSB also wanted to monitor, update, review and link all the entities’ performance to the overall corporate performance.
