THE Philippine Army (PA) is now globally recognized as one of the best organizations in terms of strategy execution after it was inducted into the Palladium Balanced Scorecard’s Hall of Fame for Executing Strategy.
No less than Army chief Lt. Gen. Rolando Joselito Bautista received the award during the Reimagine Strategy: Palladium Positive Impact Summit 2018 in London, United Kingdom, on Wednesday.
The award was conferred by Professor Robert S. Kaplan, professor emeritus at the Harvard Business School and cocreator of the Balanced Scorecard.
“I would want everyone here to remember the main reason we bade for the Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame. More than the award is the proof that we have a functioning and world-class strategy. And we promise to continue the journey so that we will be better of service to the Filipino people as a transformed Army they can truly be proud of,” Bautista in said in accepting the award.
Bautista was accompanied on his London trip by Col. Joel M. Paloma, chief of the Philippine Army’s Governance and Strategy Management Office.
Army Spokesman Lt. Col. Louie Villanueva said the recognition was given after the Army successfully passed the on site evaluation process by experts headed by David McMillan, director of the Office of Strategy Management of the Palladium Group in January this year.
The Army has been implementing the Army Transformation Roadmap as its strategy since 2010.
Villanueva said that, through the execution of the strategy, anchored on Kaplan and Norton’s strategy management system and its local adaptation called the Performance Governance System (PGS), the Army has achieved milestones and recognitions.
In 2014 the Army achieved its PGS institutionalized status, which was followed by the award of “Islands of Good Governance” in 2015.
The Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame for Executing Strategy publicly recognizes organizations that have successfully executed their strategies and achieved breakthrough results through the use of Kaplan and Norton’s strategy- management system.
Having inducted more than 200 organizations worldwide since its establishment in 2000, the recognizing body is regarded as the gold standard for strategic-performance management.
