An IDI retrospective of 2022 - and a peek at what's to come in 2023
Happy New Year from IDI! We extend a warm welcome to 2023 to you all, along with this reminder of our many rendezvous and collaborations in 2022.
To our great joy after the enforced isolation of the previous two years, many of these connections (such as INCOSAI in November) were in-person, or delivered via the mixture of live and online interaction we have all come to know as 'hybrid'. As soon as the barriers to travel lifted - and where it was both useful and with due consideration of the environmental impact - IDI's team ventured far and wide to support capacity development, either for individual SAIs or to attend global events in the regions like the gathering of the newest cohort of SAI Young Leaders in Thailand.
Many of you also joined us in Oslo for in-house learning events and conferences, or to provide expert input to the development of our initiatives and programmes. We even managed to get most IDI staff members together for the first time in three years for a meeting in August, in which we enjoyed some team-building activities and worked on the Strategic Plan 2024-2029, with input from new Chair of the IDI Board, Karl Eirik Schjøtt-Pedersen.
Of course, a good proportion of IDI's programme was delivered online. Our digital connections have continued to build and streamline during 2022, with a focus on videos and the development of our own apps including e-SAI PMF and IDI Learn. Our Learning Management System (LMS) achieved a record 3 million pageviews, mostly as a result of being so well used by the many hundreds of you attending the PESA-P pilot in professionalisation for SAI auditors which launched in August 2021. Many successfully completed PESA-P in 2022. Congratulations to all involved!
Throughout the whole of 2022, we looked to the future with a renewed sense of vigour and a sharper focus on what we will all need as a community - and even as a planet - to move forward with confidence. This perspective is evident in our Operational Plan for 2023, the last year in our current Strategic Plan, and in the way we're shaping the Strategic Plan for 2024 onward. We look forward to sharing this with you all over the coming months, and connecting with you very soon.
With very best wishes for a peaceful and productive 2023.
