A major Middle East Police Force required PA’s advice on the establishment of world class strategic management processes. Increased government ambition for the country required the force to make significant improvements in its strategic planning process, vision for itself and operational effectiveness.
PA experts worked extensively with the force, initially to develop a tailored approach for strategic planning and its implementation. We reviewed the force's existing approach to strategic planning, then compared that with international good practice (both within and outside policing) and identified key areas where change was needed. We provided detailed recommendations for improving the force's approach to strategic planning, including making changes to performance and programme management to ensure that the strategic plans were subsequently capable of implementation. The client subsequently commissioned PA to assist it in the longer term implementation.
PA's work has been publicly commended by senior government ministers as an example of best practice. The force has itself been asked to provide details of its approach to other departments within the government and wider region, thus recognising the “best practice” status it has now achieved.
