The Development Academy of the Philippines’ Center for Governance-Operations Management Office conducted the Training on Strategic Planning, its first offering for the year designed to provide officers and staff of the bureaucracy the needed competencies for formulating the different elements of a strategic plan.

The course, which was held last April 23-27 at the DAP Building in Pasig City, saw strategic planning and risk management experts from the Academy and an economic development specialist facilitating the training sessions for some 35 participants, who were later given the opportunity to apply their learnings through a presentation of their draft strategy map, agency scorecard, risk register and strategic initiatives to a panel.

The panel was composed of Director Gilbert Lumantao of the Center for Governance-Policy Research Office, Acting Director Catherine Luzuriaga of the Corporate Operations and Strategy Management, and Senior Project Officer Peter Dan Baon of the Center for Governance-Operations Management Office.

Attending the five-day training course were representatives of national line agencies, government-owned and controlled corporations as well as state universities and colleges.  These are the Bases Conversion and Development Authority, Department of Budget and Management, National Commission on Muslim Filipinos,  Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process, Mindanao Development Authority, Philippine Competition Commission, Cebu Technological University, Western Mindanao State University, Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, Office of the Ombudsman, National Security Council, National Telecommunications Commission, Department of Agrarian Reform-Cordillera Administrative Region, Department of Science and Technology-MIMAROPA, and the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority.
