March 2013. A workshop was organised and funded by SIPA and conducted by Lim How, a psychologist and a consultant from Singapore. The week long workshop is on Transformational Leadership.
Employees are the invaluable asset of SIPA. For the company to advance in pursuing its vision and reform itself as an enterprising government entity, its manpower resource has to be transformed in work ethics and adopt a more strategic work approach.
This should create a dynamic corporate culture where quality of service delivery and customer satisfaction is guaranteed and much is achieved.
Transformational Leadership is not only about pursuing personal success but having confidence, inspiring and empowering others to take responsibilities, success through strategic planning and greater commitment and achieving greater results that transform communities, organisations and corporate entities significantly to greater heights.
Strategic plan 2013- 2017
Experts from Singapore have been engaged in February this year 2013 to provide expert guidance in the development of the SIPA’s strategic plan 2013 - 2017.
With the obligation under the State Own Enterprise (SOE) Act, this strategy will ensure that SIPA Governance is Sound, its strategy reflects the National Values and Commitment to building " A United, Vibrant Solomon Islands". In this commitment, the planning is to project Solomon Islands Ports Authority (SIPA) as the Point of Call, and the Ports as the Shipping and Tourism hub for the Pacific Region.
As part of the strategic plan, a team of consultants from Singapore is engaged and will be arriving during the course of the year to review SIPA’s financial and operational functions. The review exercise includes the Information Technology section, Finance, Human Resource and the Operation.
The ultimate goal is for SIPA to operate efficiently and effectively in delivering its services through investment on appropriate port technology. This will attract and increase trade volume through the ports and also make SIPA operate on a sound and sustainable financial capacity.
Thanks to IPacific Frontiers and its professional partners for developing and championing the SIPA's strategic plan 2013 - 2017.
