7 A Strong Safety/ Customer Value Focus As a natural and statutory (ATC) monopoly, ensuring transparency is essential to be accountable to customers. The Company is fundamentally based on three pillars of value creation for our customers: Safety Cost effectiveness Service Quality These pillars drive the overarching objectives established by our Board of Directors.
8 Overarching Objectives Maintaining a safety record in the top decile of the major ANSPs worldwide. Maintaining customer service charges in the bottom quartile (lowest charges) of the major ANSPs worldwide. Implementing and maintaining a modern cost- efficient ANS technology platform in the top quartile of Major ANSPs worldwide. Ensuring that growth in costs of providing air navigation services do not exceed the growth in charging units, thereby resulting in a decline in customer service charges over the long term. Creating a productive and fulfilling work environment which places NAV CANADA amongst the best employers in Canada.
9 Overarching Objectives Drive Measurement Our overarching objectives are the ultimate performance measures. All our internal measures relate to the overarching objectives. These objectives focus our performance measurement efforts thereby keeping the number of high level measures manageable. Having a reasonable number of measures also recognizes the significant resource requirements that can arise.
10 Why Does NAV CANADA Measure Performance? A score card on how we measure up to our objectives. To demonstrate value to customers, or lack thereof. An early warning system to identify deficiencies especially with respect to safety. A way to rank our Company against ourselves and with other ANSPs around the world. A tool to identify areas of improvement or best practices
11 Internal Performance Measures Performance measurement occurs throughout the Company. Individual managers goals are linked back to the Corporate objectives. High level performance measures focus on customer concerns. The following examples are high level measures in Safety, Cost Effectiveness and Service Quality, the three pillars.
12 SAFETY IFR to IFR Losses of Separation
13 COST EFFECTIVENESS Customer Costs Per Flight Hour
14 COST EFFECTIVENESS Flight Hours Per Employee
15 Traffic Is Growing
16 SERVICE QUALITY YYZ Arrival Delays
17 SERVICE QUALITY Equipment Outages
18 What NAV CANADA Has Learned Good consistent data based on clear definitions is essential. Data must be relevant to customers. Measures must be related to objectives. Collecting, analyzing and reporting on performance measures requires resources. Measure whats relevant not whats nice to have. Must avoid demand driven comparisons
19 International Performance Measures NAV CANADAs overarching objectives require good international information from other ANSPs in a timely fashion. Secretariat paper is helpful but too many different performance indicators to be useful. Operational Concept has 11 key performance areas and more than 32 KPIs. This is too many. International measurement must recognise that different ANSPs serve different customers. Measures must be relevant to those ANSPs. Avoid prescriptive metrics. NAV CANADA supports the industry effort lead by CANSO for global benchmarking.
20 Conclusion NAV CANADA is committed to safety, cost effectiveness and quality service to customers. Using appropriate performance measures ensures that NAV CANADA stays focused on customers concerns. Timely and validated international performance measures would be very useful for ANSPs and their customers. The development of ICAOs performance measures must take into account local and regional differences, leaving ANSPs and their customers to determine the measures that work best for them.
