Creating the Organisational Strategy Map

Strategy Planning and Deployment

Strategy planning is a scientific process of creating strategies, deploying them, evaluating results and implementing lessons learnt and refining the process on an ongoing basis. An organisation that is truly matured balances its focus on action and results and makes constant course corrections to stay true to its purpose. SSA offers a holistic and time tested approach to Strategy Planning based on its experience of guiding hundreds of industries world-wide. The key shift we bring about is that management and employees at each layer and each employee level is fully aligned with a shared set of objectives that are drilled-down from the organisation’s objectives. The management’s focus is therefore entirely hinged on a set of key initiatives and metrics that aim to propel the organisation towards its short and long-term goals.

How We Approach it

The first step in SSA’s strategy planning process is creating the Organisational Strategy Map (also called as Hoshin map) through a participative workshop with senior leadership team. The organisational strategy map normally focuses on the improvement of company-wide business processes that require cross-functional coordination or coordination between the company and its suppliers and customers. Once this map is completed, it is time to start delegating responsibilities to teams across various functions within the organisation. Getting people to engage and buy-in on the deployment process and deliverables is the key to strategy execution. This is achieved through successive cascading to tactical and operational levels by a process known as ‘catch-ball’. The strategy deployment process links all levels of the organisation to one another through lively discussions about the future of the company and negotiations about targets and means, roles, responsibilities, and the allocation and development of resources.

How We Help Clients

SSA offers a proprietary 12 step approach to strategy planning that involves envisioning, strategy formation and drill-down to departmental and individual goals and objectives. Over time, as strategies are crystallized, the key challenge remains implementation and follow-through. A well documented strategy is only as good as its implementation. At SSA, we lay special emphasis on implementation. We achieve this through a meticulous deployment process of linking and cascading strategies down to the grass-root level workforce. This is followed by a rigorous review regime to ensure people stay on course and time and effort is spared for only the most important strategic actions.
