Personal governance and Dream Philippines 2046

/ 02:05 AM February 26, 2024

In continuation of my article featured last Jan. 15, 2024, the second and final phase of crafting and executing a person’s Plan of Life involves the building of that person’s personal balanced scorecard. A big majority of strategic plans (whether country, government agencies, business and social enterprises) fail because of faulty execution or no execution at all. To ensure that the person’s strategy map is implemented properly, there is a need to develop for each of his key objectives the measures, baselines and targets, both for the short term and the long term. In addition, he has to embark on key initiatives that will ensure achievement of the key objectives.

An example of the Personal Strategy Map and Balanced Scorecard is shown at the right. (Goals and objectives are in summary form. The detailed objectives are fully expressed in the preceding paragraphs):


How is personal governance connected to Dream Philippines 2046?

The core purpose of the Dream Philippines 2046 is the transformation of the Philippines and the comprehensive development of the Filipino, by the Filipino and for the Filipino. While the Filipino is the focus of Dream Philippines 2046 and will be the prime beneficiary if this transformation road map succeeds, he cannot just wait, like Juan, for the mango to fall from the tree. The only way Dream Philippines 2046 will happen is if there is enough critical mass of Filipinos who will push to make this happen. These Dream Philippines “warriors” will need to take the lead to operationalize the strategic objectives of the country road map. The warriors need to arm themselves with weapons in terms of personal governance skills sets, a burning motivation to help our country, the energy to persevere against odds and the grace of a loving God.

In crafting the Dream Philippines 2046 Road Map, the conveners identified eight strategic facets in building a nation, namely: moral-spiritual, socio-cultural, political, human resources, natural resources, physical infrastructure, technological-digital and economic-financial facets. They then developed three to five strategic objectives per strategic facet and came up with a total of 28 strategic objectives that government, business and civil society sectors can work on. Common to all these three sectors are individual Filipinos who are integral parts of those sectors. Together they can make a difference and make Dream Philippines a reality. INQ
