London, UK – On June 13, 2017, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), a Kenyan-based international development organization presented its case study on the implementation of a corporate web-based strategy execution system at the Gartner PPM Summit held in London.
Ms. Josephine Njau indicated that AGRA, with its portfolio of over 600 grants, needed a tool to collect, aggregate, and report on performance data to measure the achievement of its strategic goals and objectives. The importance of a monitoring tool became even more pivotal after the adoption of a new $500 million, 5-year strategy 2017 – 2021. Ms. Njau described how the tool laid the base for improved monitoring of the performance data and enhanced AGRA’s operational management and strategic decision-making.
The cooperation between AGRA and Synergy International Systems, the provider of Indicata software, started in 2016. AGRA selected Synergy as its solution partner after an international competitive bidding.
Founded in 2006, AGRA is focused on the agriculture value chain from research and development to output markets providing uniquely African solutions to the smallholder farmer. The organization is donor funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, USAID, DFiD among others. AGRA operates in 18 African countries together with over 300 implementing partners to transform African agriculture and improve the lives of millions of smallholder farmers on the continent.
