Singapore emerged from our research as a future focused international benchmark. A city-state which enjoys a strong relationship and a rich exchange of knowledge and ideas with Australia, where our Urbis business is located.
Our Mission Fit Cities scorecard combines a rigorous and integrated set of metrics which have been selected to predict how a city will perform in the future, based on the strengths of its foundations today. It has been informed by our Generation 6 Cities research which explores the challenges our cities face and the factors that will underpin their future competitiveness, resilience and livability.
People and Planet are fundamental to future success. If we cannot support the environmental resilience of our cities, then they cannot grow; equally if a city has a weak People score it cannot progress socially or economically.
Positivity and Power focus on the themes of confidence and leadership, they suggest the importance of both building momentum and having the collective capability to harness it.
Place is an important mediator of city experience, supporting inclusion, identity, wellbeing and knowledge share: it is essential to the talent agenda and a key investment in growing Performance.
Whilst Singapore may not come out as the strongest performer against all success indicators, Australia can learn from the city’s focus on optimising human capital and consequent Mission Fit Score of 85%.
