PERSIST 2.0 launched to improve KPI management

By Balqis Jazimah Zahari

The Department of Polytechnic and Community College Education (JPPKK) launched the ‘POLYCC Performance System’ (PERSIST 2.0) for the centralised management and monitoring of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) of polytechnics across the country.

This system records KPI achievements for 128 polytechnics in the country through four upgraded modules.

This information will be used by the department in evaluating the institution’s performance from time to time.

The provision of a ‘dashboard’ display facilitates faster and comprehensive information access for all parties.

The development of PERSIST indirectly supports the intention of the Minister for the Ministry of Higher Education (KPT) in promoting digitisation efforts as a whole in all aspects of management, education, learning and services of the KPT.

The Director General of Polytechnic and Community College Education, Mohd Zahari Ismail was present to launch the new system at the ‘2023 Aspiration Council of the Director General of Polytechnic and Community College Education’ at the Perak Jubilee Hall, Politeknik Ungku Omar (PUO) today.

The ceremony with the theme of ‘POLYCC Drives a Civilised (MADANI) Nation’ was also attended by the top management of JPPKK as well as directors of polytechnics and community colleges across the country.

Meanwhile, Mohd Zahari during his speech also shared some achievements throughout the past year.

“JPPKK currently has 36 polytechnics, 105 community colleges with a strength of 10,211 staff and 98,045 students nationwide.

“POLYCC is the country’s largest contributor of technical workforce which is 40 percent,” he said.

He said POLYCC also managed to surpass the graduate employability rate of over 90 percent for three consecutive years.

“Last year, the employability rate of polytechnic graduates recorded a percentage of 95.32 percent and a percentage of 96.66 percent achieved by community colleges,” he said.

Based on the MADANI national philosophy inspired by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, heĀ  also emphasised the 3K Principles covering Welfare, Harmony and Blessings which are used as the basis of new working principles to support a sustainable management transition.

“One of the initiatives proposed through this principle is the establishment of the POLYCC Welfare Foundation,” he said.
