"Great product that has transformed our approach"

What do you like best?

The visibility, it provides while planning and executing our plans; in particular being able to quickly identify the programmes and projects which were not aligned with our business objectives and key outcomes.

What was important for us through the whole process was being able to clearly identify what was working and what wasn’t. This really allowed us to reshape what we were doing which had a really significant impact on our plans.

Also, our programme and project teams were able to raise in a timely manner issues, risks and decisions relating to their activities, that needed to be brought to the attention of the leadership team. In time, I can see it replacing our monthly status reports.

What really made a difference to us what this isn’t just another point tool. Shapecast had a whole structure and method which really helped us through process.

What do you dislike?

The team at Shapecast, were very responsive to our feedback. Though it would be nice to have a feature that allowed every member of the team to directly communicate the feedback to Shapecast on 1:1 basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Strategy Execution is great product for planning, executing and monitoring all the initiatives for your organisation, allowing you to constantly track which ones are generating value and which ones need to be reviewed. Don’t confuse it with a project/portfolio management tool. This whole process is really about making sure you’re doing the right thing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our rapid growth, opened many routes to market which we were keen to exploit. By working with Shapecast, we were able to plan our portfolio of programmes and projects ensuring they were aligned with our objectives and vision, allowing us to de-prioritise certain programmes with low value and focus our attentions on those that were critical to achieving our key outcomes.

When it came to executing the plan, the leadership team had complete visibility over the whole portfolio and could see where and why projects were stalling or tracking behind their timelines. At the same time, our project teams had a clearer understanding of their responsibilities and accountabilities as well as an appreciation of the company vision and the part they played in supporting it.

We now have a fully aligned and joined up activity plan, the outcomes of which will enable us to take full advantage of the global opportunities that will present themselves over the next 12 months leading to a conservative budgeted revenue increase of around 15% on 2017 results.

"Provides clarity and focus"

What do you like best?

Ease of use, beautifully designed and the fact that we could see in a single platform all the initiatives we are running, how they are contributing to our goals and complete visibility of when and who is responsible for delivering the various activities.

What do you dislike?

Ability to attach files to the various initiatives would be great? Dashboard is really useful but an added ability to improve notifications??

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a product which forces you to have clarity on our goals and keep you on track by providing the high-level overview of all your activities and yet at the same time allowing you to zoom in on areas which needed attention, then I highly recommend the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By allowing us to link our goals and objectives to every activity, we found it to be a powerful tool to communicate the ‘Why’ we were following a certain path to our staff and enabled them to focus on activities which contributed most to our growth.

What Strategic Planning solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!
