Enhanced Decentralisation Strategy: Strengthening Country Focus and Client Responsiveness Through a Tailored Approach


There have been recent significant institutional investments in improving the quality of Bank Group operations. Most notable of these investments are the institutional reforms approved by the Board of Directors on April 7, 2006, which involved the reformation of the operations complexes and the Office of the Chief Economist1 . It will be recalled that the main thrust of this exercise was to assure enhanced operational effectiveness through country focus, client responsiveness as well as systemized knowledge generation, dissemination and application. The desired objectives of the reformation of the operations complexes have necessitated a review of the Bank Group’s decentralization strategy, which is an important vehicle for client orientation and operations delivery.
