The Government, under its Public Service Reform Initiative (PSRI), has embraced the Performance Management System (PMS) as its vehicle for achieving the desired performance-oriented culture in the Public Service.
Strategic planning is a fundamental requirement for the successful implementation of the PMS. The strategic plan forms the critical link between national high-level initiatives on the one hand, and Office/ Ministry/Agency purposes and direction on the other hand. Therefore, strategic planning in the Namibian Public Service has become mandatory.
Consequently, the MLR develops Five-Year Strategic Plans. The Strategic Plan for 2011-2016 was based on a situational analysis which examined the status quo and identified the issues that affect the Ministry’s operations and require strategic interventions. Based on the information collected, the Ministry identified its key strategic themes and objectives, and developed Vision, Mission and Core Values Statements to provide a clear direction towards achieving the strategic objectives.
To ensure the successful implementation of the Five-Year Strategic Plans, the strategic themes and objectives are cascaded into annual plans which are referred to as management plans.
To achieve the above mentioned Vision and Mission Statements, the Ministry of Lands Reform needs to abide by the following timeless guiding principles, which are the deeply held beliefs within the Ministry of Lands Reform to be demonstrated through the day-to-day behavior of all staff members whilst implementation the Strategic Plan.
