Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for a Sovereign Nation.
The client hosts an annual international knowledge exchange platform that brings together a diverse community of thought leaders, government officials, and policymakers to further the discussion about the future of government.
A particular focus of the gathering is to enable governments and support policy makers in developing and implementing data driven, evidence-based policies.
The client was interested in the development of a data-driven governance index that would provide a holistic view of wellbeing across the world to present to stakeholders at its annual meeting.
Bâton Global (B|G) was charged with conceptualizing and developing an index that would measure and forecast country level performance across multiple dimensions and numerous indicators to provide policymakers and governments with insight into areas in which they are making progress towards enhancing the wellbeing of their citizens.
The development of this tool allows countries across the globe to assess their current efforts in delivering wellbeing to citizens and to understand how future policymaking could drive improved national outcomes.
The scope of this project includes four main areas of activity:
Exhaustive research across academic, industry, and public policy sources was conducted to identify theoretically justified and empirically validated drivers of a nation state performance. B|G supported the organization in the following ways:
B|G narrowed down data points into a manageable index and developed the inaugural model to enable the index to inform and support policy makers in their policy making decisions.
B|G ran all secondary country data on the model and developed a research brief and technical guide.
The client unveiled the index to the internal organization in 2018.
