SUPREME COURT STAFF WORKPLAN SEMINAR
The Supreme Court’s 2010 annual Staff Workplan Seminar focused on ‘Achieving Creative Excellence’, as embodied in its acronym “ACE It”. Held on 15 April 2010, the event took stock of past achievements and looked ahead at future workplans across for the next two years.
Explaining the theme for the year, Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong said that creativity and continual improvement would help the Supreme Court make a quantum leap and prepare for the challenges ahead. He went on to elaborate on the four strategic thrusts of the workplan, namely customised training, cross collaboration, knowledge management, and paradigm shift.
Citing the Integrated Electronic Litigation System (“iELS”) as an example, Chief Justice Chan showed how the project represented a paradigm shift which positioned the Supreme Court as a thought leader in judicial administration and court technologies. Initiated through cross collaboration with various stakeholders within the organisation as well as externally, the iELS exemplified how customised training could augment staff competencies and how knowledge management could be exploited to transfer institutional knowledge through and across technology platforms.
Registrar Foo Chee Hock also addressed the staff and emphasised the need for collective effort and communication. He urged all staff to adopt a personal stake in the workplan and its outcomes. Following his address, the Directorates presented their respective workplans for the year.
