What is PCOR?
The Programme for Change and Organizational Renewal (PCOR) is an organization-wide change initiative to make UNIDO “fit for the future”. The three-year programme looks at ways to further improve UNIDO’s role as a partner for prosperity, as outlined in UNIDO’s Mission Statement, by better delivering to recipients’ needs, better meeting donors’ and Member States’ expectations, and enhancing an efficient and pro-active working environment. The programme is based on the Leading Change and Organizational Renewal (LCOR) congruence model which ensures that all aspects of the change — business processes and formal organization as well as people and culture — are addressed in a systematic and holistic manner. Steps taken include a reengineering of the Organization's business processes and the introduction of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Throughout the process, UNIDO has taken care to address the institutionalization of results-based management, risk and knowledge management as well as staff development and improvements in the working culture.
