Application of strategic planning methodology to Republic of Turkey Ministry of Finance

Özahçı, Erhan
In this study, it is aimed to determine and implement a process based strategic planning methodology for Turkish Ministry of Finance. Proposed methodology has been implemented in Ministry of Finance by a TÜBİTAK supported strategic management project in collaboration with Ministry of Finance Strategy Development Unit (MoF_SDU), TÜSSİDE and a private Consultancy Company. This project was a direct consequence of reforms on Public Financial Management and stipulated by the Laws No. 5018 and 5436 which have been prepared based on efficiency in public service delivery. Proposed methodology is different from other strategic planning methodologies for public and non-profit organizations because it uses a combination of numerous techniques that are previously developed for strategic planning. Examples are mentoring, e- learning, idea tray method, and process modelling. Firstly, strategic planning methodology is determined with close inspection of international approaches and best practices. Ministry of Finance’s organizational chart is redesigned to enable more effective and efficient operation. Ministry of Finance is divided to 14 strategic business units (SBUs). For every SBU, detailed environmental analyses are conducted and critical issues are derived. Mission and strategic vision statements are clearly determined and core processes are modelled and standardized. Strategic goals and detailed objectives are formulated. Finally, performance indicators are determined for every objective for evaluation and continuous improvement. At the end of the implementation, 2008-2012 strategic plan for Ministry of Finance is prepared and numerous organizational improvements are observed.


R&D project performance evaluation with multiple and interdependent criteria
Tohumcu, Zeynep; Karasakal, Esra; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
In this study, an Analytic Network Process (ANP) and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) based approach was developed in order to measure the performance of customer-based Research and Development projects being executed in TÜB TAKSAGE, Defense Research and Development Institute, under the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey. In order to evaluate project performance, many criteria, containing various subcriteria were determined. In order to handle the interdependencies among the criteria and...
A game of clustered electricity generators
Günaydın, Alper; Serin, Yaşar Yasemin; Department of Industrial Engineering (2009)
Turkish Electricity Market is modeled as a non-cooperative game with complete information in order to simulate the behavior of market participants and analyze their possible strategies. Player strategies are represented with multipliers in a discrete strategy set. Different market scenarios are tested through different game settings. As the novelty of this thesis, similar market participants are clustered and treated as single players in order to apply game theory in an efficient way. Generators are cluster...
Hybrid ranking approaches based on data envelopment analysis and outranking relations
Eryılmaz, Utkan; Karasakal, Esra; Department of Industrial Engineering (2006)
In this study two different hybrid ranking approaches based on data envelopment analysis and outranking relations for ranking alternatives are proposed. Outranking relations are widely used in Multicriteria Decision Making (MCDM) for ranking the alternatives and appropriate in situations when we have limited information on the preference structure of the decision maker. Yet to apply these methods DM should provide exact values for method parameters (weights, thresholds etc.) as well as basic information suc...
Multi-item inventory-routing problem for an FMCG company
Zerman, Erel; Kırca, Ömer; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
In this study, inventoryrouting system of a company operating in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry is analyzed. The company has decided to redesign distribution system by locating regional warehouses between production plants and customers. The warehouses in the system are all allowed to hold stock without any capacity restriction. The customers are replenished by the warehouse to which they have been assigned. Customer stocks are continuously monitored by the warehouse and deliveries are to be sch...
Solution approaches to the blood distribution problem of the Turkish Red Crescent
Kurt, Atil; Azizoğlu, Meral; ÇETİNKAYA, FERDA CAN (Inderscience Publishers, 2018-01-01)
This paper considers the blood distribution problem that includes irradiation centres, urgent demands, and product availability in Turkey, Central Anatolian Regional Blood Center of the Turkish Red Crescent. To address the problem, we develop a mixed integer linear program with two objectives: maximising the demand satisfaction and minimising total time travelled by the vehicles. We propose two decomposition-based heuristic solution approaches. The results of our experiments have revealed that the model can...
