ICAO is transforming its Secretariat into a more adaptive and collaborative organization demonstrating operational excellence.

By 2027 the organization will have fully embedded a results-driven and people-focused culture and way of working. we will have a more transparent, accountable, efficient, and values-guided culture and, in collaboration with key partners and other stakeholders, we will be increasingly more innovative and agile.

Together these combined achievements will deliver greatly enhanced services for its Member States.

ICAO's 2023–2025 Business Plan is accordingly focused on transformation, people, innovation, and efficiency and effectiveness when addressing ICAO's mandates.

The cross-cutting Transformational Objective has been designed to achieve these goals for the ICAO Secretariat by driving vital corporate reforms and new innovation projects.

This transformation will enhance ICAO's programme delivery toward the Strategic Objectives for the air transport sector contained in the Business Plan, and will help the Secretariat to realize new economies of scale and other efficiencies through more intensive organizational integration.

Due to the complexity and scale of the Transformational Objective, its challenges are addressed across the entire ICAO Secretariat during its initial three-year implementation period. Its supporting Strategy has accordingly been structured to achieve four Key Outcomes delivering an entirely new ICAO way of working:


These Key Outcomes will in turn will be aided by several interdependent programmes and projects, arranged under three core Transformation Pillars, and the six Transformation Outputs which inform them:
