Key collaboration concerns for Chief Minister and Chief Secretary
Concerns of various chief ministers and chief secretaries regarding their inability of conducting frequent highly effective reviews which is slowing down the pace of execution of the various state wide projects and schemes of their state that is so dear to them and which leads to massive cost overruns and the state exchequer incurs a huge opportunity cost.
1) As we oversee projects across the state we cannot do frequent reviews with our execution teams of senior officials as much as we would like to do as it would require a very high frequency of travelling for our key state ministerial officers to the state capital because best reviews are conducted face to face only. But because travelling consumes lot of either mine or my state wide senior officers very valuable time and is also a very expensive proposition, face to face reviews cannot be done as frequently as we would like to do. This causes huge delays in implementation of various projects and welfare schemes.
To get over the problem of frequency of reviews we have already tried conducting reviews over video conferencing but have found them not to be even 10% as effective as reviewing face to face on account of whole lot of quality struggles we have to endure in video teleconferences every time when we connect another location over video conferencing.
It becomes further worse when we have to review with multiple location officers simultaneously together which often is the case. If face to face review experience is like travelling by a luxurious car on an expressway then the experience of a review over video is like travelling on a bumpy road sitting on the floor in a crowded open tractor trolley. So this is not the experience we can really work with to increase the pace of execution of projects and welfare schemes!!
So how to conduct the various project reviews with the statewide senior officers teams with one another or multiple locations simultaneously on demand frequently with an effectiveness of same location reviews without making them frequently travel to the state capital which they are still forced to do in spite of having access to do video conferencing?
2) Our ministerial officers are spread over the entire state. Multiple sessions that are repetitive and time consuming need to be conducted to bring everyone up to speed over video conferences because of lack of effectiveness of doing them over video conferencing especially for addressing all the locations together! This creates a substantial time lag between the time we plan and the time by which this information reaches as it should, to all the targeted members of our state. Time is money and loss of time means delays in implementation and escalation in the costs of the various projects.
So how to conduct state wide various senior official’s get together (Town halls) more effectively and more frequently so as every member of our state’s key officials teams spread across all the districts is energized and is also on the same page immediately about what we want them to do regarding various new government schemes and various new projects without making them travel to the state capital?
