Workshop Outcomes
Ten staff from the Philippines Country Office attended the workshop. The PCO saw itself as being reliable (kampante - in the local language), and yet also adventurous and flexible. Some of the key discussion revolved around the inherent tensions (or 'polarities') that exist in the operating environment, for example; Centre and CRP, full cost recovery and competitiveness, local learning and global application, research and extension. Other polarities identified are recorded here.

The presentation slides used at the workshop are available to download from here. The slides have been updated to reflect the discussion during the workshop, specifically the slides for the approvals within the core business processes.

Workshop Objectives

WorldFish is currently experiencing a lot of change. There is also lots of work going on to ensure effective and sustainable response to that change. This workshop and the sessions within it are designed to help you better understand the changes in operating context, and to engage with the ways this is being responded to.

Specifically you will:

  1. Increase your knowledge of the changing context within which we operate so that you are better equipped to respond to it
  2. Better understand our strategic response to the changing operating environment and some of what this will require of you in your work
  3. Use the ‘Polarity Management’ tool to explore the tensions inherent in our operating environment
  4. Work through our revised core business processes so that you can give your input to their re-design
  5. Understand the ongoing development work and support that will be available over the next 6 to 18 months as we deploy and refine OCS across the organisation
  6. To give you opportunity to raise your concerns and questions about the operational change we are going through
  7. Be informed about the 2013 budgeting process and what will be required of you (only for those directly involved)
