Start implementing an effective strategy in your business
Research suggests that the crucial element to successful strategic implementation lies in the link between the strategy and:
- The information that supports the strategy
- The people within the organisation executing the strategy.
Strategy is not just a top-down process; successful strategic initiatives can emerge at any level within an organisation. However there is often never a mechanism in place to capture this wealth of feedback and ideas. What is required is a system that allows for the consistent communication of strategic ideas and encourages participation and contribution; while guiding the participants towards what is the best use of their time; and the organisations strategic goals.
How the strategic management software works
Built on a system of layers or ‘blocks’, key strategic focus areas can be added with ownerships and associations as required to build a complete overarching structure. By assigning ownership to individual activities, progress towards the end goal can be continuously monitored, updated and communicated at all levels.
StrategyBlocks is a complete, fully integrated system that allows for the consistent communication of ideas, encouraging participation and contribution at all levels, and guiding participants towards the best use of their time and the organisation’s strategic goals.
By recognising that successful strategic initiatives can emerge at any level within an organisation, StrategyBlocks can be easily tailored to fit the way your business is structured.
Web-based delivery of your strategic management plan
The programme is delivered through the Web as a service. All you will need is a directory of personnel and an Internet connection. No technical administration is required, version updates and planned maintenance are completed automatically, so that software upgrades and system downtime is no longer a concern.
StrategyBlocks uses only the Adobe Flash plug-in and requires no further client components so that your system integrity is maintained. Your data is held securely offering the benefit of offsite recovery.
Strategic execution is all about putting people first
The successful realisation of any plan relies not on setting tasks, but on taking appropriate action. Before people can act they need information. Even more importantly, they need motivation.
StrategyBlocks takes a unique view of the planning process by putting people-needs first. It is designed to keep everyone, whether in a small office team or a large global organisation, constantly in the loop to ensure individual and group goals are achieved.
StrategyBlocks allows you to set goals, monitor progress, and provide the feedback that will enthuse and motivate your people to keep them on track. Knowing that their work is appreciated, that what they are doing is making a difference, is what really motivates people to see things through.
StrategyBlocks puts everyone on the same page, all of the time. Individual tasks and timelines are shared and relevant information is constantly available. Keeping track of progress is simplified and barriers to progress instantly identified from start to finish. StrategyBlocks works for any task related or goal oriented plan. It relies on a highly visual, Web-based interface that is both enjoyable to use and functional. Above all it is a powerful motivating tool that will ensure your plans are fully executed, professionally and successfully, from start to finish.
Quality information from your strategic management software
To be successful, a strategy must be supported by relevant information. Traditionally, quantitative measures such as key performance indicators and metrics have been the only visible means of monitoring. Although these are important, with StrategyBlocks qualitative information is also included. By providing the whole picture, StrategyBlocks makes meeting strategic goals more science than art.
