SAP BusinessObjects Strategy Management 7.5, version for SAP NetWeaver
Overview: SAP Strategy Management (SSM)
SSM is an application that helps both line-of-business managers and corporate executives drive strategic execution to achieve better results. By clearly linking corporate strategy to prioritized initiatives, weighted measures, performance targets, and people, customers can translate strategies into understandable priorities and tasks that employees at all levels can execute with confidence. SSM addresses the needs of both the organization and individual users. It provides executives with the tools to communicate and manage goals, initiatives, and metrics – from initial definition to completed execution. For example, pathway diagrams (patent pending) effectively depict short-, medium-, and long-term goals for the organization; live operational reviews ensure that departments are in sync with strategic goals; and tools to manage resource priorities and exceptions help sustain focus on the initiatives most likely to have impact. And because the software enables managers to distill strategies down to initiatives and tasks, it provides all employees with actionable plans that they can understand and will adopt. Companies can also link employee incentives in the SAP ERP Human Capital Management solution to individual objectives to increase motivation and ensure an even greater chance of success. Employees are empowered to leverage their collective intelligence, work collaboratively toward a common mission, and understand exactly how they bring value to the business.
- Enterprise-wide adoption of strategy and alignment of their entire organization to execute swiftly on strategies
- Effective communication enabled by custom visualization techniques (patent pending)
- Greater employee accountability and cross-departmental collaboration
- Improved prioritization of resources and swifter responses to issues requiring correction
- For example, a leading provider of diabetes products achieved ROI of 889% (verified by a third party) with use of this software - primarily based on productivity enhancements from better alignment of plans and activities with corporate strategy.
