Aside from great speakers, four workshops were incorporated with the main objective of: INFORMING, INSPIRING, and INVOLVING. The workshops helped participants process the groups strategies and BU priorities.
Leading the transformation of the group, is MPTC President and CEO Rod E. Franco (REF) who presented MPTC’s 2022 Key Strategies and Priorities gleaned from 30 hours of grueling focus group discussions with senior management across the business units.
How do we get to a sustainable MPTC despite the uncertainties? REF presented how we will get to this by showing the compass for 2022, or in other words, MPTC’s circle of life. The six pillars are:
- People and Culture
- Financial Stability
- Strengthen Core Business
- Elevate Customer Experience
- Digital Foundation
- Mobility Ecosystem and Business Diversification
In the outermost circle are the non-negotiables that must be maintained when we pursue the six pillars. These are:
- Planning and Performance
- Health and Safety
- Data and Infosec
In getting the commitment of the participants, REF emphasized that, “transformation begins with us, with you, with me, all of us.”
