The Performance Governance System

The pathway to lasting governance reform

The Performance Governance System (PGS) is a holistic and collaborative framework for designing and executing roadmaps to long-term reform.

PGS culls global best practices in managing strategy to meet the rising needs of Philippine public sector institutions. It builds governance reform capacities across a four-stage pathway, and addresses a wide array of challenges while also yielding niche impact. At the national level this means world-class public service; at the local level, a robust economy.

This framework is now used by over 100 national government agencies and local government units in the Philippines, of which 14 have been independently verified by global experts as Islands of Good Governance (IGG), and 5 have been awarded membership in the exclusive Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame for Executing Strategy.

These national agencies and local governments continue to raise the bar on what the modern public sector institution can achieve together with its stakeholders. Each one is a true partner in governance reform, playing a significant role in building our Dream Philippines.
