Pain

Real impact of strategy deployment was hampered by too much focus on templates and tools.

Problem

Hard to maintain multiple interconnected spreadsheet X-Matrices and Bowling Charts in spreadsheets.

Root Cause

Spreadsheets not good with regards to version control and to enforce and maintain links between goals, KPIs and projects.

Software evaluation

FSN identified two candidate strategy execution management (SEM) solutions. Following an evaluation process, they selected i-nexus based on the availability of – and familiarity with – three critical key reports: X-Matrix, Bowling Chart and Action Plan.

“We were really struggling to efficiently manage and deploy strategy in the portfolio with the historic spreadsheets as they become hard to use in policy deployment throughout the year. The match between our strategy framework and the Hoshin basis of i-Nexus as well as the reporting features made us go for i-Nexus as our strategy deployment tool”
