Knowledge Note

IFC’s decentralization brought out the importance of centralizing portfolio reports and data in support of our Manufacturing, Agribusiness and Services (MAS) sectors and portfolio regions. To this end, the MAS Global Portfolio Unit took steps to become prepared to handle an increasing amount of portfolio requests and at the same time make it easier for MAS staff to access and distribute data and reports. One of those steps, for example, was to set up the MAS GPU SharePoint Reports site for staff across the regions, giving users access to portfolio data from a central reporting site—tailored for MAS departments’ needs, apart from Management Information System—just by typing “MASGPU” in the intranet browser. This SmartLesson tells the MAS GPU success story.
