New TKI index reveals government digitalization rankings

February 23rd, 2023 Posted by Research 0 thoughts on “New TKI index reveals government digitalization rankings”

The United States ranks first worldwide in embracing digitalization to improve the growth and well-being of society, according to The KPI Institute’s Government Services Index 2022.

With a pillar score of 0.9059, the US emerged as the top performer in four out of five indicators:  government procurement of advanced technology products, availability of latest technologies, cost of redundancy dismissal, online e-participation, and e-government development.

Norway topped the list in terms of fixed broadband subscriptions and came second overall in the digitalization dimension. The other three frontrunners in digitalization are the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.

“The pandemic has prompted a quantum leap into online and digital environments that governments worldwide need to adapt to. A ‘digital access for all landscape’ has become the new normal in the post-pandemic world. As part of this landscape digitally empowered governments need to secure broader access to digital connectivity, apply human centric design approaches in both digital and physical environments, develop robust digital data infrastructures to ensure smoother operations,” the report states.

The Government Services Index 2022, a pragmatic review of public service performance in the post-pandemic era, covers seven world regions, 66 countries, five dimensions, and 32 indicators. Apart from digitalization, the four other dimensions in which countries are assessed are adaptability, talent, governance, and impact.

Adaptability refers to “the ability to adapt to changes to develop a flexible public service apparatus” while governance “reflects on the public services as an enabler of the government to implement its policies and provide key services for the population.” Talent examines “how learning and knowledge are built inside the public services environment, as well as to the quality of talent available on the national labor market.” Governance examines “the public services as an enabler of the government to implement its policies and provide key services for the population.”

“With the advent of smart devices, sensors and drones the number of ‘machines,’ or otherwise ‘computers’ has exploded. It thus becomes a mission of the highly digitized government to increasingly look into encouraging human interactions with such physical technology so as to reduce redundancy and foster new labor opportunities. The latter would have to be tied into growing IT talent, moving towards having human resources managing code environments and systems, technological robots and devices, setting standards, providing security and supporting implementation.”

Implementing the balanced scorecard system: expert insights, resources, and advisory

February 15th, 2023 Posted by Courses, Research, Webinar 0 thoughts on “Implementing the balanced scorecard system: expert insights, resources, and advisory”

In 1992, Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton introduced the balanced scorecard (BSC) to the private sector as a method for measuring performance beyond financial outcomes. This tool reflects the four major dimensions of an organization: financial, customer, internal processes, learning, and growth.

According to Kaplan and Norton, BSC translates a company’s strategic objectives into coherent performance measures using a comprehensive framework. Moreover, they believe that BSCs can lead to “breakthrough improvements” in the areas of product, process, customer, and market development.

In her article titled “The Balanced Scorecard: Outsmarting design and implementation traps,” Marcela Presecan, head of research, explained the 10 areas that must be examined before using BSC in an organization: strategy drafting, management identity, bureaucracy, employee perception, communication without understanding, lack of common vocabulary, getting over the experimental scorecard, standardizing balanced scorecard design, adapting to the business environment, and commitment of the organization. “When implemented with its full potential in mind, the balanced scorecard is one of the best reflections of an organization’s contribution to the real operating environment,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Manoj Dubey, a consultant at TKI, argued in an article that the concept of BSC must be revisited. “The perspectives of BSC, especially internal processes and learning and growth, should evaluate the quality aspects of an organization in Industry 4.0. It should ensure that strategy formulation, strategy execution, and performance measurement system are aligned to new technologies,” he wrote. “A traditional approach of BSC leads to fixed or orthodox KPIs which are not relevant in today’s technological scenario. The concept should revolve around improving processes using the latest IT; this includes having new KPIs.”
