18 Extract from the preamble of The Constitution, 1996 (Act No 108 of 1996) “Improve the quality of live of all citizens and free the potential of each person…….”
19 The White Paper on the Transformation of the Public Service (WPTPS), 1995 To establish a policy framework to guide the introduction and implementation of new policies aimed at transforming the SA Public ServiceThis policy sets out 8 transformation priorities, amongst which Transforming Service Delivery is regarded as key.This policy also declares that the Public Service should be…People-centricPeople must come firstBatho Pele “ A better life for all”
20 Vision and Mission of the SA Public Service “Continually to improve the lives of the people of South Africaby a transformed public service, which is representative,coherent, transparent, efficient, effective, accountable andresponsive to the needs of all.”MISSION“The creation of a people-centered and a people-driven publicservice that is characterized by equity, quality, timeousnessand a strong code of ethics.”White paper of the Transformation of the Public Service, 1995
21 White Paper on Transforming Public Service Delivery (Batho Pele, 1997) To provide a policy framework and practical implementation strategy for the improvement of service delivery - applicable to all employees of the public sector (par. 2)The Batho Pele White Paper set out 8 principles that must be adhered to for the transformation of Public Service deliveryTo provide a strategy on how to improve access to public services to all citizens, inclusive of people with disabilities.
22 What is Batho Pele?An initiative to get public servants to be service orientated;Strive for excellence in service delivery;Commit to continuous service delivery improvement;Allows customers to hold public servants accountable for the type of services they deliver; andCitizen orientated approach to service delivery informed by the 8 principles
23 WHY A BATHO PELE SPECIFIC POLICY? To ensure that all Employees adhere to the Principles of Batho Pele and be more accountable to citizensTo have a customer-centric approach to equitable service deliveryTo improve service deliveryTo build effective relationships with the end users of public service
24 Minister for Public Service and Administration "… The department of Public Service & Administration must be used as an important point of reference in complementing the foundation lain by the Constitution in determining the non negotiables in the public service."Richard Baloyi Minister for Public Service & 8th BPLN in Durban in 2009
25 Guide for Public Servants The Constitution sets out basic values such as:Human dignity, achievement of equality and the advancement of human rights and freedomsNon racialism and non sexismSupremacy of the constitution and the rule of lawUniversal adult suffrage…..government to ensure accountability, responsiveness and opennessand principles governing public administration in chapter 10The Public Service Act complements the foundation laid by the Constitution in determining the non negotiables in the public serviceCode of conduct and Batho Pele as a service delivery policy
26 Non Negotiables “SERVE THE PEOPLE” values and principles “Live by a High Standard of Professional Ethics ”;A) Integrity - CredibilityB) Honesty - IncorruptibleC) Dedication – Hard workingD) Passion - LoveE) Commitment - BeliefF) Distinction – The extra mileG) Quality - Satisfaction
27 Non Negotiables (cont) Government as the employer has the responsibility tocreate a conducive workplace environment to boost morale of public servantsset national norms and standards through decent work, fair benefits and a living wage to attract, retain and continue motivating employeespursue redressing the imbalances by responding to demographics and investment of infrastructure and resources (education, health etc)become more responsive to the needs of workers andTrade unions must be created to address the achievement of the “conducive morale boosting environment” – providing public servants with accurate agreed upon decisions pertaining to labour.Trade unions as a strategic partner should drive the process of improved qualitative delivery in the public service and must be viewed as such at all levels.Trade unions should provide leadership in a process which is shaping the public service by fostering buy-in into “Batho Pele” and “High Ethical Standards”
29 Promotion of Access to Information Act (Act 2 of 2000) People have the right to access information held by the StateIt forces Government to foster a culture of transparency and accountability which enables the public to exercise their rights
30 The Municipal Systems Act, 2000 (Act 32 of 2000) Social and economic upliftment of communities and universal access to affordable basic services.Section 41 requires municipalities to set measurable performance targets in respect of its development priorities and objectives.Section 42 requires municipalities to involve the local community in the development, implementation and review of its performance and to allow participation in the setting of performance indicators and targets.Section 44 determines that a Department must make known to the general public its key performance indicators and targets.
31 The Public Service Regulations, 2001 Part III, paragraph C of the Public Service Regulations (PSR) also advance the implementation of Batho Pele principles by providing regulations for the development of Service Delivery Improvement Programmes (SDIPs) by all departments. Part III.C.1 - an executing authority shall establish and sustain a service delivery improvement programme for his or her department; andPart III.C.2 - an executing authority shall publish an annual statement of public service commitment which will set out the department’s service standards that citizens and customers can expect and which will serve to explain how the department will meet each of the standards
33 Background to Batho Pele Revitalisation Programme (2) BP Policy has been enthusiastically received - actual implementation has been slowNeed to go beyond eight principles - Should introduce mechanisms to support the eight principles, e.g. flagship projectsAbsence of basic requirements in departments, e.g. service standards, signage, redress mechanismsBP regarded as an add-on and NOT integral part of day to day functions

47 Minister for Co-operative Governance "… More attention will be paid to uprooting corruption ….as it hampered service delivery, …."We will make sure that we do not fail the people …..Officials who are not prepared to work for the people must change their attitudes or they must ship out.” We will remove all obstacles that will seek to hinder our progress on turning around this municipality."Co-operative Governance Minister Sicelo township, the site of violent service delivery protests on 18-Feb-2010
48 Who is directly implicated by the Batho Pele White Paper This White Paper is directly applicable to:national and provincial, which are regulated by the Public Service Act, 1994.However, it is relevant to all areas and employees of the public sector regulated by other legislation, such as:local government and parastatals,teachers in education departments, as well as theSouth African Police Service,South African National Defence Force andthe Intelligence Services.
49 The people must come first: the 'customer' concept How to treat citizens as customers To treat citizens as 'customers' implies:listening to their views and taking account of them in making decisions about what services should be provided;treating them with consideration and respect;making sure that the promised level and quality of service is always of the highest standard; andresponding swiftly and sympathetically when standards of service fall below the promised standard.

51 Group Work Provide a definition for each principle as your understand itList some ideas /examples of how the 8 Batho Pele Principles can be applied in your work situation. Highlight Consultation and cover everything possible about it, andHow do you understand the concept: The people must come first-the 'customer' concept - What it meant by “treat citizens like customers?”How does the public perceive the public service?Break in groupsReport back to class20 minutes for exercise
52 Consultation All national and provincial departments must, regularly and systematically, consult not onlyabout the services currently provided but alsoabout the provision of new basic services to thosewho lack them.Consultation will give citizens the opportunity ofinfluencing decisions about public services, byproviding objective evidence which will determineservice delivery priorities. Consultation can also helpto foster a more participative and co-operativerelationship between the providers and users ofpublic services.
53 Cont..All stakeholders should be consulted on the nature, quantity and quality of services to be provided in order to determine the needs and expectations of the end users.Citizens can be consulted through the following:-Customer surveysCampaignsIzimbizoWorkshops
54 Citizens can be consulted through the following:- CONSULTATION METHODSCitizens can be consulted through the following:-Consultation must cover the entire range of existing & potential customers;Consultation should include previously disadvantaged ito access to public services; due to geography, language barriers, fear of authority;Consultation process should be undertaken sensitively (pers info) ;The results of the consultation process must be reported to the relevant Minister/MEC/ Mayor/MM Executing authority and the relevant Portfolio Committee, and made public, for example through the media;Results must be publicised int staff be aware of how their service are perceivedCustomer Satisfaction Surveys (how many per year, how does it help in SD improvementCampaigns on service delivery (Are they done/, how often? etcIzimbizo (how often?

57 Service StandardsCitizens should be told what level and quality of public services they will receive so that they are aware of what to expectService chartersStrategic plansBooklets with standardsService level agreements
58 AccessAll citizens should have equal access to the services to which they are entitled, e.g.Decentralized offices (MPCC, one stop shops etc)Extended business hoursIndigenous languages & service charters displayedImproved service delivery to physically, socially and culturally disadvantaged personsSignage must be clear and helpfulAll frontline staff should wear name tags
59 Ensuring CourtesyCitizens should be treated with courtesy and consideration e.g. tools, measurements & systems put in place to effect customer care - customer care units & staffRight attitude!!

63 Value for MoneyPublic services should be provided economically and efficiently in order to give citizens the best possible value for money e.g.the use of expenditure controls,improved internal controls (e.g. private use of phones, budget reviews)Costs per unit of services deliveredMaximizing value as perceived by the citizen.Optimally balancing efficiency, effectiveness, and economy within the constraints of public expenditure management.Ensuring that services are accessible, appropriate, and adequate to meet citizens’ needs.Eliminating wasteful and unnecessary expenditure, and procedures.
65 How is the Public Service perceived? The Public Service is currently perceived asbeing characterised by:inequitable distribution of public services, especially in rural areas,lack of access services,lack of transparency and openness andconsultation on the required service standards,lack of accurate and simple infommation on services and standards at which they are rendered,lack of responsiveness and insensitiveness towards citizens' complaints, anddiscourteous staff.
66 WHY SHIFT/REFOCUS: INTRODUCTION OF BATHO PELE IMPACT ASSESSMENT (BPIA) Key principle: impact assessment of BP policy: New approach three-fold:Allocation of BP principles to provinces.Dedicated monthly themes in line with govt priorities.Excellence awards programme.66
69 Batho Pele Vision & Belief Set The vision of Batho Pele that is expressed through a Belief Set, “We Belong, We Care, We Serve”.It is important to note that the Belief Set is not meant to replace the 8 Batho Pele principles but instead to re-enforce them.The Belief Set should rather serve as a value system that all public servants should identify with and embrace in their quest to provide essential services to their clients.It is our corporate identity!
70 Translating the Belief Set into Action….. Creating a better life for all by putting people first will be achieved by:Engaging Employees- We belong because we are recognized and rewarded for living Batho PeleCaring for Customers- We care because we are devoted to doing the job until it is done, ensuring that we deliver beyond customer expectationsServicing the Public- We serve by delivering an experience to look forward to that offers world class integrated service delivery for all South Africans

86 South African Social Attitudes Survey Batho Pele:Season of discontent – A study David Hemson and Benjamin RobertsSome of the highlighted issues:The message from respondents is that government is improving delivery but not managing to communicate and respond to people’s prioritiesThe areas of greatest need of improved service delivery- informal settlement and rural communities are experiencing the lowest level of consultation, redress, openness, relevant information, and courtesy
90 Organizational Culture It is the pattern of beliefs and values, rituals, myths and sentiments shared by the members of an organization.It influences the behavior of all individuals and groups in the organization.It impacts most aspects of the organizational life – how decisions are made, who makes them, how rewards are distributed, who gets promoted, how the organization responds to its environment.

101 Why teams fail?Lack of support, information, time, and resources from managementLack of a clear idea of what they are to accomplishLack of skills to work together effectively or to analyze the problem they faceOver-managed, management imposing personal agendas or seeking political solutions to problems that require objective answers
102 Team Charectaristics: TEAM EFFECTIVENESS“a group of people working together to achieve common objectives and willing to commit all their energies necessary to ensuring that the objectives are achieved”(Humphries:1998)Team Charectaristics:PurposeEmpowermentRelationships & CommunicationFlexibilityOptimal productivityRecognition & AppreciationMorale
103 Gearing up for Delivery Then why do up to 70% of major performance improvement projects fail?This is why KPMG can be so good – Our differentiator!Your first test. Did you learn earlier?
105 Inspiratinal Quote” I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear..… changes affect all of us differently, none of us are left untouched. In the midst of change there are those that loath, fear and fight it and then there are those that see change as an opportunity to innovate. We realize that …change is also the opportune time for all to work together for the betterment of our nations”Nelson Mandela.
106 WHAT IS CHANGE? Some definitions Shift from the way things have been done to the new way of doing things, therefore a difference between the past and the futureHow does it happen?Through the introduction of newIdeas (by leaders e.g. the President and the New Cabinet, HoDs, CEO of Hospitals, Municipal Managers, new government priorities etc.)Work processes and systems (e.g. car licenses, refuse removal, etc)Who gets affected by change?Firstly the Citizens (recipient of services), secondly everyone in the organization
107 Benefits of changeBetter planning, coordination and improved use of resources and implementation of plansEffective, efficient and economic work distribution and better focusMore opportunities for career progressionStrengthen public participation and regular engagements between citizens and public officialsTo respond to the needs of the public and fulfill its electoral mandate
108 HOW CHANGE IS MANAGEDNo common strategy to all change processes (i.e. no “one size fits all” situation). However, there is a common thread – customer first!Change management should be linked to other management processesBest Practice advice to managing change processes in organizationsIt must be incrementalIt must driven by the leadership of the organizationThere should be appropriate institutional arrangements to support changeIt must be supported by an effective communication strategy
109 Expecting things to change when you continue to do them the same way
110 Issues about Change… Change is difficult People fear change Change threatens top managementCommunication is a change agentLead by example
113 “A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn Unable to familiarize staff with new vision and missionUnable to articulate the rationale for changeManagement not leading changeIntroduction of change determines the degree of resistanceBrings severe discomfort, uncertainty and reluctance, inconvenience, uncertainty, and anxietyNo communication strategyrecognise other key management elements -human relations, organizational development and strategic planningserve as a basis for understanding and acceptance of change (change agent)
115 Key Components of Change Management Change Management in its simplest form is about changing individual behaviour……..LeadershipWe rely on leadership’s ability to align Batho Pele to the organisation’s vision, to give meaning to the change required, to model the behaviour and to actively manage complianceWithout leadership there can be no change or the impact will be minimal.
117 Key Components of Change Management (Cont…) CommunicationEffective communication engages employees on Batho Pele and it provides them with the opportunity to be part of the change processBy being “close” to the Batho Pele Initiatives, employees will view themselves as being co-creators of Batho PeleThis will not only lead to better service delivery, but to a substantially improved understanding, acceptance and support thereof by employees themselves
118 Changing Attitutes Nothing changes until attitude changes Batho Pele Principles are:- aimed changing the attitudes of the public service- aimed at creating a new service delivery culture for the public service- not an end themselves but a means to an endBehavoiur does not just happen it is taught and modeledManagers have an upper hand in crafting a new culture
119 Batho Pele Principles and Behavioural Change These principles have more to do with human values and dignity than operational processesA way of conducting oneself in the presence of othersBatho Pele embodies the values that are enshrined in the Bill of Rights – right to dignity as human being
120 ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS BEGINS WITH INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY… 120
121 Words of knowledge Learning from failure You've failed many times, although you don't remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim Don't worry about failure Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.Sherman Finesilver, US District Court Judge
123 Emotions of Change Immobilization (Fear, confusion, overwhelmed) Tactics – be allowing and accepting, encourage talkDenialTactics – Ask what the understanding is?Anger (effort to regain control)Tactics – Listen, don’t take it personally, understandBargaining (compromise)Tactics – Make it clear there is no bargainingDepression (frustration, sense of loss, low coping)Tactics – Be supportive and encourage responsibilityTesting (trying new alternatives)Tactics – Help explore realistic optionsAcceptance (responds to change realistically)Tactics – Acknowledge progress
124 Using the right Tools in times of change is critical Noble goals are often forgotten and transformation processes fail because hardworking and sincere people often use inappropriate tools that actually makes matters worse
125 There are people who always keep on doing this to you... Be strong and keep going on! !
126 Quote by MPSA” The cry of Batho Pele is loud and clear and someone need to come closer and help so, the good policy of Batho Pele should be upheld and complied with....Let us help public, servants as we roll out service delivery programmes, Let us help municipal workers, as we deal with our Integrated Development Plans, Let us help organs of civil society, as we are all together in into this. We belong; We care; We serve….Yes, we can make a difference”.Honourble Minister R Baloyi – 2008 BPLN)
