The aim of the strategic plan is to ensure that the Bank has competent human resources to enable delivery on its mandates. It also aims at aligning all activities of the departments to the vision and mission of the Bank. The IDU plays a major role in coordinating and monitoring the implementation of the Bank’s strategic plan; performance management system; Salary Review Surveys; and Skills Audit projects. This Division also organises various general management development courses and coordinates department-specific training interventions to add value to the skills inventory. In implementing the strategic plan, the Bank has adopted the Balance Score Card (BSC) system as a monitoring tool. The IDU is the custodian of the BSC system.
