Articulation

Vision

For strategy development and execution to be widely recognised and practised as a formal and professional discipline, supported by digital tools.

Mission

To improve the quality of business strategy development and execution in all organisations.

Values

StratTech

The development and execution of strategy and performance plans should benefit from technological innovation in the same way that other business processes do.

Collaboration

Groups of people working together produce more robust strategies than individuals working alone.

Living Document

Strategy should be a living process which permeates everything an organisation does, not a document which gathers dust on executives' shelves.

Structure and discipline

Strategy should exist as a tightly integrated set of mutually reinforcing policies and actions, not as a loose collection of vague ambitions and disconnected plans.

StratNavApp allows strategists to generate insights with popular strategic frameworks such as SWOT, PEST, McKinsey 7-S, Porter 5 Forces, BCG Matrix, Porter's Value Chain, Pareto Analysis and the Strategy Canvas.

It then allows strategies to be articulated in the form of a Vision, Mission and Values, as well as Balanced Scorecard goals, objectives, KPIs and targets.

Strategic initiatives, together with cost and benefit statements, can be linked to goals, and managed through the consideration and approval cycle in a 3 Horizon or Gantt chart view.

Finally, it assists in the control of strategy execution using a RAID log, stakeholder management using the RACI framework, and meeting manager.
