A TWO-DAY workshop organised by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) for its senior management staff will be used as a guideline for the review of the authority's corporate plans.

The workshop was attended by 22 senior leaders and 13 managers of the organisation.

"Strategic planning is an activity that influences an entire organisation. A good strategic plan will involve input from a large cross section of LTA's workforce," said LTA board member Tomasi Tui.

"A well-implemented plan will influence the workplace patterns and behaviour of the majority of the workforce."

Mr Tui said it was important to plan for the future, especially for employees of the organisation.

The workshop was an eye-opener for most senior staff because it allowed them to see how inter-linked their activities were.

"LTA's policy must reflect activities consistent with the overall direction that is to be undertaken," Mr Tui said.

"The organisation should ensure the cascading effect from the strategic plan, that is of three to five years, to the annual corporate plan for one year.

"Each individual in the organisation must try to collectively accomplish the strategic, corporate and business plan and should be monitored and measured," Mr Tui said.
