Activity Based Management: Putting results in the centre of policy making
The objectives and the interests of the European Union as a whole have always come first for the Commission. But a central aim of the Reform was to better plan and organise the way the Commission carries out its work by setting clear priorities and making sure that the necessary resources are available.
For this purpose the Commission introduced an annual strategic planning cycle to define its political priorities for each year, to set the objectives to achieve and to allocate the resources necessary to get there.
The basic concepts are simple: to establish priorities, discuss them with Parliament and Council, plan in DGs and present a Work Programme, execute it and then report on the results.
