strategic planning solutions-ascend

Ascend provides professional services and technology-based solutions to the organizational challenge of developing, executing, monitoring and measuring strategic and tactical plans, projects, and initiatives. Unlike the traditional strategic planning process which frequently results in a dusty binder on a shelf, the Stratex Ascend approach starts with gathering feedback from key organizational stakeholders, then adds the results of extensive organizational analysis to develop a sustainable strategic plan. The plan features the long term goals and objectives, tactical annual plans, capacity analysis, Balanced Scorecard measurements and a simple leadership review process.

The approach features a cascading approach from the top of the organization to the employee level. 

90% of strategic plans fail and less than 15% of employees can name any corporate strategic initiative. The causes of these dismal figures include lack of communication, visibility, real time tracking and monitoring. The Ascend software features the following:

  • Strategic and tactical plans in one easy-to-use tool. Everyone knows the plan, what is required to delivery it, and what is needed to achieve the plan
  • Best practice strategic planning approaches providing clear processes for setting, monitoring and measuring plan progress and outcomes
  • Leadership performance reviews are conducted painlessly through reporting for all levels downloaded to the software format of choice
  • Clear line-of-sight is achieved from the highest strategic level to individual contributor and task level
  • Automated email communication generation each time resources are assigned, tasks are completed and due dates have passed
