E lectronic Compass A ligned P erformance S ystem A simple one page strategic plan executed through an on-line performance management system
Every organisation is perfectly aligned to get the results that it does! Let align your organisation to get the results that you want! E lectronic C ompass A ligned P erformance S ystem Looking for a simple, effective and affordable strategic planning, implementation and performance management process that aligns all the staff to achieving the vision? Then is the tool for you. is delivered in a two day practical interactive session that produces a one page strategic plan, together with supportive individual performance plans for the next six months and a web based execution system to ensure the process is monitored and results are achieved. Any existing Strategic Plan or Balanced Scorecard can be incorporated into the model with ease. Further to the two day session there are follow up interventions designed around the organisational requirements to keep the focus and performance measures alive. Leaders will be coached on how to keep the plan active and to make adjustments when things change. The people who have to perform create the plans and, as a result, the buy-in and ownership is enhanced. This process is easily cascaded through the organisation from top strategy; to annual team plans; to individual plans and performance criteria. This holistic approach involves all the people in the organisation. It enables them to realise the contribution they are making to the achievement of the vision. In large organisations, key people will be coached on how to facilitate the process through a methodology that is participative and motivating. This allows staff to quickly and effectively contribute to the success of the organisation. Outcomes A common vision Improves executive time management Creates a clear Strategic Focus at all levels in the organisation Focus on the important issues requiring greatest improvement Develops an organisational culture based on a collectively created set of values Gives an understanding of those issues that are critical to the achievement of the vision Each individual has a simple one page performance agreement for the next six months Establishes tactics and actions to support the business goals Establishes measurable performance indicators Easy to change and adjust as required Creates a striking easy to follow plan Allows for ownership of the process People are involved in the process Motivates and aligns the team Improved communication Gets results The 4 pillars that is built on 1.Simplicity 2.Ownership 3.Flexibility 4.Accountability
Background The process was developed by Clive Howe in 1999 having found that there was a need to simplify strategy and develop a process for easy implementation. He found that many organisations had very comprehensive and complex strategies but there was often a gap between the strategy and the operational implementation of this strategy. The process addressed this gap and people found that they could easily relate to the one page process. We have grown the brand and introduced it to a wide range of organisations. More than 200 organisations in Africa, UK, Europe and Australia, have adopted or used the model in one form or another and this number is growing daily. The reason for this growth is the partner network of accredited facilitators who have access to the material and have been trained to facilitate the system. In July 2002 the book Simple Solutions to Strategic Success was published which gives a clear understanding of the elements of the process and its application. Fifteen months after the book was published it went into second print and continues to sell well. A third edition should come out in In 2004 a second book was published Simple Solutions to Balancing Your Life and this shows how the process can be used to establish a life plan. A third book Simple Solutions to Effective Marketing was published in The model The model covers the main aspects of most strategic plans namely Vision, Values, Critical Success Factors, Key Performance Indicators and Strategic Objectives. It represents a 3 year plan for the organisation. It is set out in a simple way so that one can see how all these align and are measured. The Key Performance Indicators are in the pink arrows on the left of the model and are the dash board measures for the organisation.
The compass consists of the Vision, Values and Critical Success Factors. As the word suggests, everything should align and be filtered through the compass. It is important that time is spent creating these and wording them correctly to ensure that they cover all aspect of the organisation. The Strategic Objectives in the yellow section need to be allocated to people within the organisation to ensure that there is somebody responsible for each one. The implementation model sits below this with each member of the leadership team committing to and agreeing on their contribution in the next 6 months. Every individual in the organization can also have a single 6 month plan based on the overall strategic direction. The 6 month individual plans cover the following: Objectives for the next 6 months and the supporting actions and tactics to achieve these. Each objective is also measured and there is space to write up how well they were executed. The 6 month plan also has space to show the big goal that the organisation or department is aiming for within that period. There is a section to write up what personal development is needed during that time to make the individual more effective. The final section of the 6 month plan is there to outline the best practices needed to be a more effective person. All of these can be measured and there is space down the left side of the model to make comments etc. Thus the system is able to be used as a performance process.
