Promoting excellence and improving performance happens at all levels. We oftentimes focus on employees, managers, and heads of departments, but we mustn’t forget about the upper echelon – directors, and executives. They represent the starting point for an organization’s vision, mission, and overarching goals.executive

If we were to take a look at many companies, a large percentage of the reason they became and remained successful is their leadership, specifically, the people positioned at the highest ranks 

However, a number of organizations also failed precisely because the individuals at the helm did not know how to steer them in the proper direction, oftentimes swaying too much to one side or going completely off-course. 

Here at The KPI Institute, our belief is that no business should ever fail or steer off-course if it benefits from proper management. Many of our courses focus on ensuring mid-tier level or intermediate-level leaders receive the knowledge they need in order to stabilize, improve, or maximize the performance of their organization. With that said, we felt it was high time we also focused on a business’s zenith, namely its uppermost executives. 

The Executive Program in Strategy and Performance 

The Executive Program in Strategy and Performance is the most complex educational program in The KPI Institute’s portfolio.

It is designed for business leaders who are interested in strengthening their skills in strategic planning, performance measurement based on Key Performance Indicators, data analysis, and reporting, strategy execution in dynamic markets. 

The Executive Education Program is split into two parts: a postgraduate diploma course and a graduate certificate course.  

  • The Postgraduate Diploma in Strategy and Performance spans over the course of 3 semesters, or 18 months, and covers 8 specialized learning experiences. Once you’ve finished all your studies, you are required to put together a practitioner portfolio that will focus on 40 assignments. This course also awards you 280 CPD points, for your CPD development portfolio.

  • The Graduate Certificate in Strategy and Performance only lasts 2 semesters, over a period of 12 months, requiring its learners to complete 4 specialized courses and put together a practitioner portfolio that will focus on only 20 assignments. This course also awards you 140 CPD points, for your CPD development portfolio. 

Out of the 8 specialized learning experiences, 6 are mandatory, while 2 are elective. The 6 mandatory ones are Strategic Planning, Performance Measurement, Performance Management, Strategy Execution, Performance Management System Audit, and Employee Performance Management. 

The final two are up to preference. You can choose whichever two options you wish, out of the following: the Balanced Scorecard, Objectives and Key Results (OKRs), Innovation Management Framework, Data Analysis, Data Visualization, or Benchmarking. 

Admission process 

The admission process for Executive Education Program is straightforward and only has 4 steps: 

  1. You schedule an initial discussion with us, expressing your interest in this program 
  2. You submit an admission file, which will contain your letter of intent (200-500 word), your CV, and all diplomas that reflect your educational background 
  3. We will review your admission file 
  4. We will schedule an interview with you 

After the interview is concluded, we’ll look to submit a final answer on your application process in up to 3 days’ time. 

Participant profile 

This course is primarily aimed at mid-tier and high-level leaders, from sales managers, chief accountants, production supervisors, and facilities managers, to directors, presidents, vice-presidents, and CEOs.  

Our intention is to focus on business leaders who wish to better their ability to plan ahead and strategize for the future, based on present data. We cover all aspects related to business improvement, from strategy execution, data analysis, and KPI measurement, to systems thinking, project management, and performance reporting. 

Competency framework 

Each of the courses covered in this program is intended to help you expand your competencies and capabilities so that you will become an integrated strategy and performance executive. The core of our Executive Education Program courses focus on the following:  

  • The Certified Strategy and Business Planning Professional will augment your strategic planning capability, whilst improving your strategic thinking, stakeholders’ engagement, and communication competencies.

  • The Certified Agile Strategy Execution Professional will advance your strategy execution capability, whilst refining your systems thinking, project management, and leadership competencies.

  • The Certified KPI Professional will amplify your performance measurement capability, whilst developing your KPI selection, data collection, and data visualization competencies.

  • The Certified Performance Management Professional will elevate your performance improvement capability, whilst enhancing your data analysis, problem-solving, and decision-making competencies.

  • The Certified Employee Performance Management Professional will supplement and boost your knowledge on employee performance management capability, whilst progressing your employee performance planning, employee evaluation, and feedback sessions competencies.

  •  The Certified Performance Management Systems Auditor will evolve your Performance Management System maturity model based-assessment capability, whilst intensifying your examination, analytical thinking, and solutions design competencies.

Through the Executive Education Program, we aim to build a new generation of executives, one that is ready to surmount any business trials or obstacles, much like a seasoned general.

In the 21st century, it is unacceptable for a business leader to falter in the face of adversity when in this day and age, there are more tools and tricks available than ever before. 

At The KPI Institute, we believe that through knowledge, dedication, and hard work, any challenge can be overcome. Even though some hurdles are greater than others and may cause setbacks, many of the greatest success stories in history came from failure. 

It is high time we addressed the high rates of failure in strategy execution so often encountered in organizations. It is time you shape the future, by knowing exactly what needs to be done and how to generate changes in the strategy and performance management practices of your organization.

It is time to become the best version of your professional self that you can be.

Course Story: Employee Performance Management – Singapore November

January 1st, 2020 Posted by Events 0 thoughts on “Course Story: Employee Performance Management – Singapore November”

Oftentimes, the Performance Management System is perceived as being the same thing as the employee appraisal system. While this is not an accurate interpretation, it nonetheless holds some employee-related value. It encompasses elements of strategy formulation and implementation, across the organization, all the way down to the individual level.singapore

This is why we’ve designed our Employee Performance Management (EPM) training course to address concerns strictly related to the individual level, such as establishing performance criteria, setting up an evaluation cycle and creating an objective appraisal system.

Our management consultant, Raluca Vintila, has joined 17 members of Cambodia’s Legal Council Secretariat of Ministry of Economy and Finance, for the Employee Performance Management training course, in Singapore, between November 11th – 13th.

Course Journal

Day I

The training started after a short get-together moment, with a group exercise that would make everyone understand the role of the employee in the overall organizational picture. After that, we began incrementally narrowing down on this scope.

Afterwards, we focused on understanding the Individual Performance Management System Architecture, along with its corresponding tools and concepts. Given the public sector background of our attendees, we analyzed different employee performance management systems from other public sector organizations, such as those in South East Asia’s Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Day II

In order for participants to acquire a full understanding of what needs to be done, once they return to their organization, during the first half of the second day, we began working on the implementation project for an EPMS. Since we promote the evaluation of KPI results, competencies and behaviors – the second half was allocated to understanding the differences between these concepts and the tools that govern them.

Moreover, we practiced how to set up KPIs, and how to define competencies and behaviors in a coherent manner.

Day III

On our last day in Singapore, we reached the simulation stage, during which participants had to apply the best practices they had learnt thus far. They calculated results with different methodologies, and gained a more in-depth grasp over the differences & importance of elements (KPIs, competencies and behaviors), ending the official course day by simulating performance appraisals, with each attendee playing a different role.

The training session was finalized just like any other learning experience delivered by The KPI Institute, with a Learning Assessment Quiz.

Oftentimes, the employee performance evaluation is done just to comply with legal requirements. We believe that the Performance Management System should embed the employee appraisal component, in a manner that transforms the “just because it has to be done”, into “let’s make the most out of it”. In the end, it’s a matter of perspective and mindset.
