One of the recognized proposals that aim to support the Government of Sudan in managing its strategic plans is “Mubadra application”. Mubadara is an electronic system that enables to cascade down high-level strategic goals to a manageable level of monthly & yearly work programs through controlled work process flow and streamlining the objectives of each governmental department or unit with the overall strategic plan. The application provides a platform to hub wide range of initiatives and project proposals; link & rank them based on pre-set criteria to reflect urgency & importance; filter and recommend the most feasible option; and helps to coordinate work with all stakeholders. The system is a powerful management tool to monitor the overall strategy performance by enforcing a restricted work-flow process, controlling budget approvals, measuring performance at every stage, issuing progress reports enabling timely decision-making.
