Salatial C.

South Africa


Organisations constantly address new challenges and changing environments through adapting and sometimes, taking new initiatives. Often, this requires adjustments to organisational, strategies towards newer demands of the environment. Leading this change in an environment of existing organizational arrangements, power distributions, well established strategies and vested interests is the ultimate challenge for strategic planners. I have always been part of the City of Johannesburg’s strategic planning and organisational performance management process, thus part of existing strategies. However, I served as Head of Strategy during a period of significant change in the City. Successfully leading this process at this time proved to be the ultimate test, full of life-long strategic planning lessons of eternal value to my career. As Acting Head: Strategy, I drive City of Johannesburg’s strategic planning and organisational performance management processes. I lead the City’s Group Strategy department to develop, implement and periodically review City group strategies. I oversee alignment of operational plans of City departments and entities to institutional strategies. I also maintain a system of organisational performance monitoring and reporting and ensure organisational performance through alignment of corporate scorecard to scorecards and performance agreements of the City’s executive managers. I develop the City’s Integrated Annual Report and oversee the implementation of the City’s monitoring and evaluation framework. I am passionate about organisational performance monitoring and evaluation and served as a Director M&E in the City. I helped the City to track progress against plans and to create social value by monitoring and reporting on the City's long, medium and short-term strategies. My future lies in Strategy and Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation or Corporate Social Investments (CSI) in public, private sector or NGO sectors. This is my calling!!
