Objectives for Strategic Goal 4 - Caring, competent and responsive institutions, organisations and business: How would you suggest they be improved?

2016/11/15 1:45 PM CAT (edited)

Objectives are realistically achievable with the limited resources available. There is no point in us adding idealistic objectives which are not achievable. Please keep this in mind in our discussion - when you make a suggestion, include who you think should do this and where will the money come from?

Current suggestions for objectives:

  • A redesigned organisation structure that effectively facilitates the strategic objectives and purpose of the organisation
  • Proactive succession and talent management that achieves consistent high levels of employee performance
  • Employment relations that creates a climate of trust, cooperation and stability and achieves a harmonious and productive workforce
  • More informed and effective ward councillors and ward committees
  • Connectivity strategy for the Swartland
  • Identify risks and implement preventative and corrective controls
  • Sound long-term financial planning including making the right investment decisions
  • Sound financial management, budgeting and expenditure control
  • Realise at least a 5% expenditure saving
  • Broadening of tax/ revenue base
