Business Strategy Development

CCYD Consulting Inc. leverages Aposphere Insight to collaboratively develop successful business strategies with their clients.

Aposphere Insight serves as a centralized platform that brings together the planning of long-term strategic goals and shorter-term initiatives.

The workplan module within Aposphere Insight enables the assessment of work progress on various initiatives. Data-driven Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are utilized to evaluate the performance of the goals, providing valuable insights into their effectiveness.

For CCYD Consulting Inc., the visual strategy diagrams offered by Aposphere Insight serve as an effective tool to actively engage clients in a structured approach to business strategy development. This visual representation aids in fostering rapid understanding, communication, and alignment between CCYD and their clients throughout the strategy formulation process.

Strategic goals and short-term initiatives in an agile adaptation loop

CCYD Consulting Inc. understands the importance of adapting to their clients' unique terminology and working culture. In most management frameworks, a distinction is made between long-term strategic goals (objectives, targets, …, depending on the terminology) and more concrete shorter-term initiatives (projects, campaigns, actions, …, depending on the terminology).

The performance of each strategic goal is evaluated using Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), which are defined with baseline and target values. Aposphere Insight's DataHub allows for automated performance calculation by connecting these KPIs to relevant data sources.

Initiatives, being more tangible than goals, represent the specific work required to achieve the defined objectives. Work packages and tasks are associated with each initiative to monitor work progress effectively.

CCYD Consulting Inc. supports their clients through multiple strategy iterations. Instead of starting from scratch each time, they leverage Aposphere Insight's unique adaptation workflows, which include change tracking and detailed history, to develop their clients' strategies.

Initiatives are continuously refined based on the latest KPI assessments, ensuring that the entire company's efforts are aligned towards achieving the strategic goals. This iterative approach helps in achieving success through ongoing optimization and strategic alignment.
