What We Do
A Unique Model for Nation Transformation
Setting up a Nation Transformation Office under Head of Governments’ / Head of State office which delivers the following:
DCF (Delivering Change Foundation) uses the following multi pronged approach towards Nation Transformation -
Multi-Stakeholder consensus based Planning
Government, business, NGOs, academia and society at large participate in our multi-stakeholder consensus based planning mechanism. The entire mechanism is done through a formal framework called LAB and delivers BIG & FAST RESULTS (BFR) for State or Country in a 3-5 year period. The multi-stakeholder planning process results in convergence planning of several ‘entry point projects’.
Setting up a Delivery Management Office
Delivery Management Office is the implementation office for the projects identified through the multi-stakeholder planning mechanism. This office works under the direct supervision of the Head of State but functions independently.
Performance Monitoring & Tracking along with Problem Solving Support Implementation
Monitoring and tracking is critical in evaluating the performance of the various projects under implementation. This process allows the Nation Transformation Office to understand efficacy of the projects planned, their efficient implementation framework, control project cost and time overruns and assure their timely delivery. The process of continuous monitoring and evaluations allows identification of bottlenecks and other implementation hurdles throughout the entire implementation cycle. Dedicated resources with the right tools are always at hand to solve such problems and issues before they spiral out of control.
Platform for raising Private & International Project Finance
Revenue receipts alone are not sufficient to implement projects identified and hence a transparent and professional platform for raising private and international project finance is put in place. This allows the smooth funding of multiple projects across multiple sectors at the same time.
Emotional Connect Program & Social Audit
Our on-ground community networks ensure grassroots level outreach from the multi-stakeholder planning stage all the way to monitoring and evaluation of the projects implemented by the Nation Transformation Office. Detailed social audits through reputed global, third party agencies are carried out to get an accurate picture of the resulting impact of transformation.
Unique Model for Nation Transformation: Nation Transformation of Malaysia
BIG & FAST RESULT methodology in Malaysia
Malaysia launched a transformation program in 2009 –known as “Big Fast Results”
(BFR) to realize its vision of becoming a high-income country by 2020.
The approach was centred around ‘delivery labs’ for priority areas and the Performance
Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) was established to run and monitor the programme.
The delivery lab methodology has delivered significant results in less than 3 years
in Malaysia on
18 national key economic areas.
Performance Management & Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) was formally established on
the 16th of September, 2009 and is a unit under the Prime Minister's Department.
PEMANDU's main role and objective is to oversee the implementation, assess the progress,
well as support the delivery and drive the progress of the Government Transformation
Programme (GTP) and the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).
Chairman of the PEMANDU board is the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato' Sri Mohd
Najib Bin Tun Abdul Razak. The post of Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
of PEMANDU is held by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, YB Senator Dato'
Sri Idris Jala.
While the responsibility for end-to-end delivery of National Key Results Areas (NKRAs)
and Ministerial Key Results Areas (MKRAs) outcomes ultimately rests with the respective
ministries, and the success of the National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) rests with
the private sector, PEMANDU has been mandated to catalyse bold changes in public
and private sector delivery, support the ministries in the delivery planning process
and provide an independent view of performance and progress to the PM and ministers.
In relation to the ETP, PEMANDU has been tasked with facilitating the implementation
of the Entry Point Projects (EPPs) and Business Opportunities (BOs) that have been
identified to ensure that Malaysia is transformed into a high-income nation by 2020.
To allow PEMANDU to carry out its responsibilities effectively, it combines the
best talent from both the civil service and private sector.
Unique Model for Nation Transformation: Integrating DCF Lab inputs into a State transformation program - Water Sector Transformation
The state of Maharashtra in India aims become a drought-free State by 2019 with the Government kick-starting a new programme called ‘Jalyukta Shivar Abhiyan’(literally meaning ‘Water Secure Regions Initiative’ as a part of the “Water For All” endeavour.) This Abhiyan aims at initiating permanent measures to make the state drought-free by 2019 and to harvest rainwater within the village boundaries, thereby increasing ground water levels.
True to his promise to farmers in the State, the Chief Minister (CM), Mr. Devendra Fadnavis gave a call for ‘Per Drop-More Crop’ at the launch of the ‘Jalyukta Shivar Abhiyan’, to make Maharashtra a drought-free. The Delivering Change Foundation (DCF) through its Water Lab, has done extensive study on the issue of water scarcity in the State. During a conclave organized by DCF and the State Government, the CM made an announcement that the target is to make 25,000 villages in Maharashtra drought-free by 2019.
DCF has received an official acknowledgement for initiation and involvement via the Chief Minister’s Transformation Office (CMTO) for the State of Maharashtra. The CMTO will function with the assistance from the water conservation department and the Delivering Change Foundation in coordination with PEMANDU (Performance Management and Delivery Unit), an independent department of the Malaysian Prime Minister's office in the ongoing implementation of Jalyukta Shivar Abhiyan (JSA), an initiative towards a drought free Maharashtra.
The Government is also planning to set up a Delivery Management Office (DMO) under the CMTO, headed by the Chief Minister, to keep a close watch on the programme. The Chief Minister’s Transformation Office (CMTO) will monitor the scheme, while the Delivering Change Foundation will supervise the functioning and effectiveness of this scheme and post progress updates of each geographical area in the public domain before and after completion of the project.
DCF’s Participative Approach:
DCF conducted 32 high impact initiatives to solve the existing water problems, that were transformative in nature.
