The key to delivering on the recommendations of this effort and having impact will be a relentless focus on implementation. The primary reason prior efforts fell short was challenges around getting initiatives off the ground.
To avoid that result this time, it will be critical for us to prioritize the initiative on establishing a Delivery Unit and individual initiative working teams, and coalesce support across government, the private sector, and our local community.
The Financial Services Implementation Unit comprises a team of professionals who are responsible for managing performance and driving delivery, as well as problem-solving critical issues and providing working teams with additional support. It is responsible for defining and syndicating the targets, milestones, and responsibilities, setting up monitoring and tracking tools to report on progress from all ten initiatives. The unit also helps teams to work across organisational boundaries, pooling knowledge and expertise from the public and private sectors and between government ministries.
