Interplan?: Driving Organisational Strategy Execution

Posted by samrojseo on November 24th, 2014

A brilliant strategy cannot be planned without taking into account the organisation's ability to execute it.

In today’s intensely competitive and financially unstable environment, an organisation’s ability to manage and measure its corporate performance and make informed decisions is critical.

A key flaw within many organisations is the ineffective and inefficient measurement of their operations, and forgetting to factor this into their decision making. As influential management consultant Peter Drucker said, “What gets measured gets done.”

By implementing a corporate performance management framework, and supporting this with a solution such as CAMMS interplan®, an organisation can align strategies, budgets, culture, practice, leadership and accountabilities to its vision and goals.

Corporate performance management done well can transform an organisation, making it ultimately more successful in its everyday activities and business processes, flowing through to the achievement of its highest level strategic goals.

interplan® is an integrated planning and performance management solution designed to bring together strategic, business and service level planning into a common performance monitoring and reporting framework.

CAMMS clients have experienced first-hand the benefits of aligning reporting with strategy through interplan®. City of Boorondararecognised that there was minimal execution of certain actions and tasks aligned with their adopted strategies and plans because the Council was not formally reporting on them all. Therefore, Council decided to adopt a system that linked strategic, corporate, business and service level planning to budgets, performance measures and reporting.

The system also allows flexible reporting at various accountability points in a number of different formats.

City Boroondara also selected interplan® as it gave the most appropriate functionality, offered great value for money and users found the solution to be easy-to-use and intuitive. Since the implementation of interplan®, the Council has seen an enormous improvement in the completion rate and timeframes for implementing their strategies. interplan® has completely revamped the reporting process of City of Boroondara.
