KPIs for the KPI Minister

De facto KPI Minister Koh Tsu Koon said, "Ministers are expected to achieve their key performance indicators (KPIs) for their ministries in less than two years."

He added, "All ministers have already submitted their preliminary KPIs. All ministers except for a few who were away on official duties, had attended two six-hour workshops chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak."

Koh expected to get some results from some of the ministries soon. My initial reaction is this is an impressive excercise.

However, we should set our own KPI targets for Koh. The first thing he should do is to make these KPIs public and transparent. These KPIs are useless if they are only limited to the access of Koh, BN bigwigs, Khazanah officers and the ministers.

Koh said, "At this stage, he said, nobody would be punished for failing to meet the KPIs."

We would like to know how long does it take for a punishment to be meted out - suspension or replacement of inept ministers? It surely cannot go on forever. Is Koh given the power to review and propose action against non-performers?

He said the national KPIs, which the Prime Minister would focus on, would be made public within the next few months.

He should ensure that the KPIs for ministries will be made public too. The government needs to be accountable to the people. We should not rely on just the experts and specialists (hired by the government) to tell us whether the services provided are below par or not.

I think Koh Tsu Koon is only assigned this KPI thingy to kep him occupied as Minister.

He still owes Penangites an explanation for going against his own promise of "no backdoor Ministerial appointment".

Just tell this KPI Koh to stop all this hogwash. Rakyat is not stupid. Stop wasting time and get straight to governing. Economy, justice and freedom are far more better issues to look into. This KPI is outdated anyway. So KPI Koh can go and fly kite!!!! What a rubbish government, no wonder we are lagging behind>!!!!

Let's all check the benchmarks
Before we make any more remarks
To ensure that nothing is off the mark
When we seek to bite and not merely bark

To me, it's just another sweet sounding thingy (I'm not sure what to call it) and try to fool the rakyat that the ministers/deputies or whatever are performing and big bro is watching. All sandiwara.

Waste of time and waste of public fund for hiring KTK for this useless post. Maybe is Najib's way to get all members of BN a post. Power sharing ma....

KTK owes all Penangites lots of answers for all the scandals that happened during his term as CM. Yet he doesn't want to take the responsibility.
