DSWD holds sharing session with Philippine Army for its continuing Performance Governance Scorecard journey

After reaching the Proficiency Level in its Performance Governance Scorecard (PGS) journey, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) held a sharing session with the Philippine Army (PA) for a benchmarking activity to achieve the Institutionalization Level by 2023.

The PA is one of the few organizations conferred with PGS Institutionalization Stage and awarded with Islands of Good Governance and Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame.

In consulting with the PA, the Department hopes to jumpstart its PGS Institutionalization journey with learning and applying the strategy employed by the organization. The transformation journey of the PA is notable among the PGS implementers. They focused on meeting people’s expectations, on the synchronization of systems and processes, on organizational cohesion, and on ensuring that they are at par with the world’s best.

One of its most notable practices is the integration of Risk Management (RM) into Strategy Execution and documented through the Philippine Army Manual. This linkage is essential as it is a requirement for the Palladium Balanced Hall of Fame application. Another notable innovation of the PA is the merging of the ISO 31000 and COSO which increased PA’s appreciation of the RM.

Through the sharing session, the DSWD was able to draw lessons that would help improve the Department’s Strategy Execution and Sustainability, specifically its cascading mechanism, monitoring and evaluation tools, and the integration of PGS in all existing systems of the Department.

To support the DSWD, Col. Paloma committed their expert assistance should the Department want to further pursue RM. With this initiative, the Department aims to increase its chance of attaining the PGS Institutionalization in 2023, and achieve the Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame by 2024.
