Initiative.ly communicates the strategy as well as how your teams are executing against it - in real time.
By drawing a link from strategy to execution you gain the transparency needed to ensure alignment, drive engagement & increase your probability of success.
Teams executing day-in-day-out easily become fixated on projects, features, streams of work.
The Initiative.ly framework is an abstraction layer, relating day-to-day execution with the bigger picture to driving meaningful conversation & creative problem solving linked to business value.
Less meetings, less wondering if your teams are aligned - your team always know the "why"
Because execution is linked to strategic goals via metrics that matter - you get a real time dashboard conveying progressing.
If you need more fidelity - you can drill down into the details. No need to switch applications, schedule a meeting or ask for a status report it's all in one place.
Continuity of reporting as well as consistency in formatting allows easy comparison between the past, the present as well as adjacent items - because of the structure Initiative.ly brings - you're always comparing apples with apples.
Imagine your company or team could interrogate previous quarters in a way most cannot. Leveraging this insight into the past - to plan better future quarters. Your team could double down on initiatives likely to deliver your mission & vision - avoiding those which wont.
Simply by using Initiative.ly you're building a knowledge base which can increase your impact with every future quarter.
