Revolusi Mental: Creating Shared Value in Public Sector for Innovation and Sustainability

Tuesday, 1 June 2016, at Lembaga Administrasi Negara (LAN) Auditorium, Prof. Robert S. Kaplan, Emeritus Professor at the Harvard Business School and co-creator of the Balanced Scorecard, delivered an executive lecture on "Revolusi Mental: Creating Shared Value in Public Sector for Innovation and Sustainability". The lecture was followed by a series of insightful talks by key government officials and practitioners. The talks offer different perspectives on the challenges and opportunities in implementing Shared Value Creation.

This executive lecture was organised in collaboration with LAN-RI and Yayasan United in Diversity, and supported by AIPEG and Palladium. The event was attended by 220 participants, consists of government officials from across Indonesia-including ministries and various government agencies, donors, Indonesian Association of Public Representatives, and State Owned Company leaders.

This event aimed to examine how to bring Shared Value initiatives, specifically within the public sector, to scale. It hopes to engage various government agencies to identify the requirements needed to move these initiatives forward, and most importantly, define and measure success that delivers positive impact to all stakeholders.

The forum wishes to explore how the government in its role as policy maker and primary public service provider can embrace and execute Shared Value Creation to create innovation, inclusive growth and sustainable development in Indonesia. Prof. Kaplan and other pivotal government figures explored the challenges and opportunities in implementing Shared Value Creation both as a fundamental shift in paradigm and also as a vision and strategy.

In the first half of the program before Prof. Kaplan opened the series of inspiring and share the concept and implementation of Shared Value Creation, including some case studies within government context and with examples of the methodology, we invited the Head of LAN Dr. Adi Suryanto to give a welcoming remark, followed by a keynote speech by General Secretary of Ministry of Manpower, Abdul Wahab Bangkona. In this opportunity, Abdul Wahab Bangkona stated the importance of systematic approach in implementing Revolusi Mental, including harmonisation of regulations, to address the economic challenges in the regions. In addition to these, he also mentioned the importance of not only a strong infrastructure, but also human resources capacity to implement Revolusi Mental. Hence, it cannot be achieved without collaboration and integrated actions by government, private sector, and academics.

Kaplan also mentioned that government entities should be effective and efficient. Robust strategic planning and execution processes help governments select and communicate the political, economic and social outcomes they strive to deliver.

Based on his experiences, there are barriers that most governments encounter in strategy planning and execution: unclear vision and strategy, lack of organizational alignment, disconnected strategic planning and budgeting processes, and inability to monitor, test, and adapt performance. Hence, in order to deliver breakthrough performance for its citizens, a country, ministry, province, or city needs to set ambitious goals along with a change agenda to achieve them, translate their strategy and vision into a strategy map and Balanced Scorecard, link and align organizational units and employees around the new strategy, and link resource allocation and budgets to the new strategy.

The second half of the program provided space for speakers from key public institutions with pivotal roles in ushering a paradigm shift ("Revolusi Mental") among the public sector to share the challenges and opportunities that they see in translating the concept into a strategy within their areas of influence, and also explore how they can measure transformational impact as a whole in addressing Indonesia?s complex and interdependent challenges. The session was opened by Setiawan Wangsaatmaja, Deputy of Human Resource of The State Apparatus, Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform. In his speech, "Building The Bureaucrats Leadership Capacity to Accelerate Mental Revolution", he stated the urgency of bureaucratic reform within the government bodies: from "noble mentality" (priyayi)-aiming to be served; to "public servant"-to serve the citizen of Indonesia.

Panelists in this session were Frans Sugiarta, Senior Learning Facilitator from Yayasan United in Diversity (UID); Suyoto, Bojonegoro Regent, and Tri Widodo Wahyu Utomo, Deputy of Innovation of Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform. Frans Sugiarta underlined the importance of transformational leadership within the government in the new era. Suyoto enhances Frans's statement through his success story in Bojonegoro as Regent of that area. Tri Widodo confirmed the importance of leadership training as a part of shared-value creation process in Indonesia's public service system.
