Enhancing Integration and Providing Strategic Focus
 

The Strategic Planning Office (SPO) advances the collective formulation of corporate priorities, strategies and initiatives in support of MAS’ core objectives.

Key events organised by SPO that help shape and support MAS’ priorities and strategies include:

MAS International Advisory Panel meeting which brought together some of the world’s leading business and financial experts to advise MAS on financial
industry strategies.
Strategic planning exercise for the Leadership Community to develop a set of business priorities for MAS.
Organisation development retreat for the Leadership Community to identify organisational priorities to support the achievement of MAS’ business priorities.
Annual staff seminar where the Chairman and Managing Director convey the broad business and corporate priorities for the year ahead.

SPO conducted the second External Perception Survey to measure and track our stakeholders’ views on our performance and effectiveness as a central bank, regulator and financial centre developer. Stakeholders dealing with MAS rated us well in achieving our core objectives.

SPO is committed to building a culture that will make MAS a more cohesive, integrated and effective organisation. In addition to initiatives that encourage innovation and enterprise at the workplace, we will focus this year on enhancing our performance measurement framework, employee communications and developing our leadership.

SPO created a new category of Staff Suggestion Awards for departments that implemented the highest proportion of ideas. The new award aims to improve the implementation ratio of ideas by recognising the departments that quickly followed up and implemented their suggestions. A new section in MAS’ internal newsletter was also created to generate greater awareness of the best ideas in the organisation and encourage sharing of best practices.
