Philippine Army made it to the Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame

IMG 0516FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – The Philippine Army is now globally recognized as one of the best organizations in terms of strategy execution after being inducted in the Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame for Executing Strategy on March 14.

Lieutenant General Rolando Joselito D. Bautista, the Commanding General Philippine Army received the award during the Reimagine Strategy: Palladium Positive Impact Summit 2018 in London, United Kingdom. The prestigious award was conferred by no less than Professor Robert S Kaplan, Emeritus Professor at the Harvard Business School and co-creator of the Balanced Scorecard. Lt Gen Bautista was accompanied by the Chief of the Army Governance and Strategy Management Office, Col Joel M. Paloma.

The recognition was given after the Army successfully passed the on-site evaluation process headed by Mr. David McMillan, Director of the Office of Strategy Management of the Palladium Group last 22-24 January 2018.

In its quest for a genuine transformation, the Philippine Army has been implementing the Army Transformation Roadmap as its strategy since 2010. Through the execution of this strategy, which was anchored on Dr. Kaplan and Norton’s strategy management system, and its local adaptation called the Performance Governance System (PGS), the Army has achieved milestone and recognitions. In 2014, it reached the PGS institutionalized status, followed by being awarded with the Islands of Good Governance in 2015.

The Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame for executing strategy publicly recognizes organizations that have successfully executed their strategies and achieved breakthrough results through the use of Kaplan and Norton’s strategy management system. Having been inducted more than 200 organizations world-wide since its establishment in 2000, this recognizing body is regarded as the gold standard for strategic performance management.

In his acceptance speech, Lt Gen Bautista said, “I would want everyone here to remember the main reason why we bade for the Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame. More than the award is the proof that we have a functioning and world-class strategy. And we promise to continue the journey so that we will be better of service to the Filipino people as a transformed Army they can truly be proud of”. Winning the Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame brings us closer to our vision of becoming a world-class Army by 2028, he added.#
