Case Study 6: United Nations Agency
Over a period of 18 months 2GC worked with a United Nations Agency (UNA) to implement a new corporate performance management regime – integrating the 3rd Generation Balanced Scorecard framework with the UN’s Results-Based Management system.
Working closely with both the Strategic Planning Office (SPO) and the Executive Committee (EC), we created a tool to help the EC manage better the agency’s strategic agenda - in particular in areas where collaboration between SPO and the EC was essential, and to ensure alignment in the results targeted by each group. In parallel, we worked with the Asia Pacific Regional Director to deploy examples of these tools within a local unit with the aim of improving their ability to monitor and drive Regional strategic management implementation activities.
This case study describes both the design and implementation work we carried out, and also some work to update the tools after 12 months experience of their use.
