Strategic management software improves strategy execution
Unfortunately the traditional, wordy, unpictorial strategic plan does not achieve this as it is seldom reviewed and rapidly becomes out of date. StrategyBlocks works by turning the strategic plan into a dynamic visual strategy dashboard and collaborative strategy map.
With the inclusion of a scorecard, displaying those key metrics needed to monitor key business processes, we can build up a complete business map for strategic management. Most importantly we encourage the involvement of those responsible for executing strategy, your people. StrategyBlocks improves the communication of strategy across the business and drives improved results.
By working with leading organisations we understand the challenges of strategy management. We have created four steps to improve the chances of a successful strategy that creates lasting value.
- Map objectives and break down strategy, making it more granular and rich (top down)
- Create a collaborative, dynamic planning environment (bottom up)
- Align the organisation by linking control activities to strategic plan and encourage ownership and accountability
- Link progress, value, key performance indicators (KPI's) and risk for a complete picture of strategic health
Strategy mapping software for better communication
- It's more than a scorecard – It's not just about structured data and key performance indicators, there are a number of variables that contribute to strategic health, they also must be considered.
- Strategy is not a project – it's more dynamic and should be constantly evolving, it isn't a to do list!
- Risk must be linked – risk must be applied in the context of strategy. How does one failing strategy effect another?
- Highly visual – a strategy map should motivate and animate people, a picture is worth one thousand words. Get the strategic plan off the top shelf and turn it into a strategy map!
