Marking a significant achievement in its dedicated strategy implementation efforts, the Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame Report 2014 ranks the Emirates Identity Authority among the 15 organizations across the globe which accomplished outstanding success in devising and implementing strategic planning in the year 2013.
The Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame Report 2014 describes the 15 high achievers as follows: “This diverse group represents a broad spectrum of industries from the public and private sectors throughout the world. All are exemplars of strategy management discipline, achieved through their application of the Kaplan-Norton approach to strategy execution as embodied in the Palladium Execution Premium Process (XPP). The remarkable execution premiums these winners have achieved attest to the power of disciplined strategy management when it is successfully linked to operations.”
The reports says that by 2009 the senior team realized that achieving the Authority’s mandate required a more dynamic strategy that would also accommodate an operational model that would continue to evolve. “A comprehensive review of the strategic objectives and priorities of the Authority was also necessary in light of the dramatic increase in the UAE population (from about 4 million in 2005 to almost 8 million in 2009) and the instructions given by the country’s leadership to identify and register every resident and citizen,” the report pointed out.
“Grasping the importance and complexity of the challenge, EIDA’s leadership team prepared itself for the task ahead: Emirates ID Authority was one of the first UAE federal entities to implement a customized strategy development and execution process based on the Balanced Scorecard that also aligned to the management framework developed by the UAE Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for managing federal entities. The incorporation of strategy management best practices into EIDA’s strategy management efforts not only ensured compliance with government guidelines, but also enabled EIDA to adopt a framework that enables improved decision making with both qualitative and quantitative analysis, ensuring linkage and integration of the high-level mandate, strategy, and operational activities,” the report explained.
