Executive summary
executives and managers are under increasing pressure worldwide to improve profits of their organisations, while simultaneously improving outcomes and outputs. Facing profoundly uncertain times executives must, more than ever, ensure the organisation is poised to act and react to market forces – for future slowdown or intense activity. The challenge of dealing with uncertainty is vitally important, considering more variables and involving more stakeholders, with a greater emphasis on measurement for fine-tuning decision making. The key to this is a robust strategic management plan. To meet these considerable challenges, organisations must revisit their strategic management processes and measurement systems. There are innumerable strategic management frameworks available for use in the private sector, but the challenge is finding one that allows for scenario planning, intensive monitoring and a long-term outlook. This framework should encompass corporate performance management, the strategic use of business intelligence to communicate and monitor strategy. So how do organisations gain a better understanding of contemporary strategic management, and what should the management framework look like? What measures are appropriate within organisations and what tools are available to assist? how do organisations go beyond analytics to have conversations around the outcomes of their strategy? What does the future hold for strategy and measurement within the private sector? in this white paper, TechnologyOne presents the answers to many of these critical issues providing an understanding of contemporary thinking in strategic management and its critical importance in the private sector. it offers a strategic management process tailored to private sector organisations together with two strategic management plan templates. The paper also reviews the increasing importance of corporate performance management tools that can feed back into the strategic plan, and which are capable of measuring both financial and non-financial data. it contemplates the future direction of strategic management and corporate performance management solutions. Overall, this paper offers executives and managers a comprehensive appreciation of the importance of analytics. Yet rather than using past performance as an indicator of future outcomes it goes further, highlighting the new world of accounting for words and illustrating ways to improve organisational intelligence.
