Software needs to be visual, intuitive and user-friendly. The easier something is to use (be it digital or physical) the more someone will use it
Highly visual strategic management and strategy planning software
strategy dashboard Dashboards can be created in the StrategyBlocks tree layout by customizing the view of individual blocks and bookmarking your settings. This allows for many different custom reports showing contextual slices of your strategic plan with real-time information to help direct your attention to where it is needed most.
Output class progress
timeline (levels 1-3) The Timeline layout provides a high-level view of your entire strategic plan in Gantt chart mode. The chart offers collapse/expand functionality and can be filtered by a number of different fields such as owner, focus area, level, etc… This allows you to quickly visualize the on going status of strategies across multiple dimensions without being constrained by structural limitations (parent/child relationships). Here we are looking at all the strategies from the first three levels of the strategic plan.
strategies (progress) The Blocks Map offers a birds-eye view of the entire strategic plan while also showing the structure of the hierarchy. Every node in this view can be customized and pinned to draw attention to those areas in the most need of attention. The edges connecting the nodes show the current progress state of the child as it contributes to the parent. In this example we have highlighted one area that is performing badly so that we can bookmark (or print) it and share it with the people involved.
Strategic scorecard (risks) Risk management is made easy with a simple table showing all the risks to successful strategic execution. The table is grouped by focus area and each row shows the most important information about each risk: title, sponsor, type, impact, likelihood and status. You can drill down into the details of each one, but as a whole it allows you to quickly spot areas that need attention.
(key performance indicators) StrategyBlocks offers simple management of your organization’s key performance indicators, and these are presently in a clean table with real-time status information about each one. The table is hierarchically grouped by focus area and users can drill into any KPI to see all the targets and actuals which cause the current status and trend.
Top level financial performance (value) This specific view of the blocks tree shows the rollup of cash flows, both budgeted and actual, for the high-level blocks, as well as the current net present value, payback period, and the internal rate of return. This can give someone such as the CFO a quick overview of where the money is going in the context of strategic execution.
