Creating and monitoring strategy
Translate ambition into strategic choices and actions
Online brainstorming with stakeholders
Monitor the progress of actions
Easy to use through interactive interface
With OGSM you can create strategic plans in one overview. From objective and goals to strategic choices and actions.
The OGSM tool helps you step-by-step to come to strategic plans, together with the most important stakeholders.
With the OGSM tool you always have insight into the progress of the execution, so that you continuously learn and improve.
The objective is the organisation’s big dream. What do you want to achieve together? A good objective gives direction and energy.
The goals make the objective concrete and measurable. In this way, you all have the same image in mind and you can actually measure whether the ambition has been achieved.
What choices do you make to realise your objective? Where do you put the people and resources? The aim is to create a clear roadmap to achieve the objective.
What indicators do you use to monitor progress? The indicators make the strategies concrete and measurable. During the duration of the plan, you steer on these indicators.
What actions (projects) will you carry out within each strategic choice? Focus on the actions that are necessary, so no ‘nice-to-have’ actions.
