Manila Bulletin

Within a military organization, given its command structure, it should be “easy” to get all units aligned with the strategic priorities included in the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Transformation Roadmap (TR). Commanders are used to giving commands, and for all subordinates to fall in line and follow orders.

Such “ease” should apply to the AFP TR. The Chief-of-staff (CS) AFP has taken responsibility for the AFP Performance Scorecard, and he has given orders for every AFP unit to align their strategies, plans, and programs with the requirements of the CS AFP Performance Scorecard.

A Governance and transformation program cannot be filed away and then forgotten once formulated and launched. Its content and its many demands have to be communicated in many creative ways to all stakeholders, starting with all units and personnel in the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). Somehow, the AFP Transformation  Roadmap (TR), to be effective, has to be brought rather frequently and effectively into the radar screens of everyone in the AFP.

In this regard, the Office for Strategic Studies and Strategy Management (OSSSM) has been pro-active in creating presentation templates, and in imprinting all AFP documents with the vision, mission, and core values of the AFP. The use of collateral materials for reminding everyone about the AFP TR has been persistent: journal articles, mugs, calendars, and pins are discreet but noticeable enough. Above all, the use of celebrations, particularly those that highlight AFP progress along the transformation pathway, send a clear signal to everyone that things are moving, and that definitive progress is being made.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. Let’s face it: It has had a checkered past, with its reputation at the lowest point during the Marcos martial law years because of the human rights abuses it perpetrated at that time. It has taken a long time for the organization to outlive that reputation, especially since the side effects of the power that corrupted it continued to pop up, maybe 10 years or so ago, like the “tradition” that gave generals “pabaon” for their retirement, the eye-winking that accompanied abuses in procurement, etc.

All these eclipsed completely the good performance it has turned in, such as its performance during World War II, and subsequently with the United Nations peacekeeping forces, starting from the Korean War up to the present day, the humanitarian help it has extended to disaster-stricken Filipinos, and its keeping at bay those who believe that armed conflict will lead to the achievement of their goals.
