Strategy software: Strategic management & planning
The vast majority of strategic initiatives fail. Why is this? Because the strategic plan is generally too wordy, un-pictorial, static and it becomes rapidly out of date. As a result it is not engaging but more importantly, it is not in the hands of those who need it the most – your people! Take a moment to view this short video to get a better understanding of what our strategy software can accomplish for your strategic plan.
Fundamentally change the way you engage with strategy
Make it come alive for every member of your team. We believe to execute effectively and efficiently the strategic plan needs to be:
- Clearly communicated
- Dynamic, evolving with the constantly changing market conditions.
- Connected to people, by putting it in the hands of everyone in your organisation.
- Its progress and value needs to be monitored and measured.
Strategic management by nature needs to be dynamic
As responsibility for specific aspects of strategic execution are delegated down through the layers of the organisation, it becomes more detailed. In this way the high-level vision and goals become richer and develop over time, with the content and ideas being driven by those in the organisation with expertise in specific operational functions and roles.
Strategy should be connected to people
This is achieved by communicating strategic goals visually and by encouraging the involvement of individual’s within the organisation. This ensures that their performance and work practises are directly linked and aligned to your organisations vision. Monitor and measure:
- How fast are we progressing?
- Are our key performance indicators reflecting our expected outputs?
- Are our strategies driving the financial value that we hoped they would?
Now strategy is defined as a graphical framework of strategic thinking from the macro down through to the micro. In addition, key indicators are identified to monitor strategic outcomes. To gain a complete understanding of strategy we need to draw together the unstructured content of our strategy map- the actions, with those structured measures - the outcomes.
