New Brunswick Incorporated to Replace New Brunswick Government
Originally posted in June 2014
I have spent most of my career in New Brunswick and in one way or another focused on strategic planning, project management, corporate turn around management. corporate governance and starting businesses both for profit and nonprofit. I also did my stint working for the government of NB.
In every private company be it a mature or a start up or a profit or nonprofit one consistency was that the driving force was either a corporate strategic plan or a business plan. If they did have either and were reluctant in developing plans these organizations failed. Another consistency was the corporate governance models being employed which focused on the accountability of the individuals at each level of the organization.
In the last election and previous governments the focus on action items have been on social, cultural, health care, education and anti-business collaboration. How has that worked out, it did not. The term that is always used is Government is here to serve the public. This is grossly inaccurate. The government is here to manage and increase the assets of New Brunswick being accountable to all taxpayers.
How do we create prosperity for New Brunswick citizens? If must be done through collaboration between all stakeholders. Each bring their strengths to focused agendas set in advanced with priorities consensus with constituent's approvals.
So how do we move to prosperity. We start by setting up New Brunswick Incorporate. What is the recommended first step of any new organization? CORPORATE STRATEGIC PLANNING.
My next post will outline the planning process and the priority areas to address. After the process is defined the next is organization.
Since this was posted in 2014 we have had a new government that have adopted a separate structure in name only but no long term planning undertaken. We are where we were, going backwards.
