Business as usual or strategy implemented

DecideAct is a robust Software as a Service (SaaS) for effective strategic governance. DecideAct makes the implementation of your business strategy as tangible, transparent and quantifiable as financial performance. 

The strategic accountability becomes clear and unambiguous and the automatic follow-up ensures that strategic initiatives are carried out on time.

How DecideAct Works

DecideAct helps management clarify and follow up on strategic decisions, ensuring that activities are dealt with according to plan and in a timely manner.

The user interface is a clear and secure SaaS solution, which means that it is accessible anywhere and anytime.

DecideAct is intuitive and easy to use and requires no training or special qualifications.

To start a new initiative, simply click on “New initiative” and give it a name and a priority level. From there you can add a deadline, the person responsible and a sponsor.

Now you can focus on overall management tasks instead of cracking the whip at your employees.

strategy execution

Ensures effective strategic governance, clear strategic accountability and reporting, and ensures strategic implementation.

You don’t need to hold meetings to get status, just track progress like in your financial system.

Supports any strategic framework from Balanced Score Card BSC, Pillars Critical Success Factors (PCF) to Objective Key Result (OKR) or those customized by your organisation.

Easily implement a strategic hierarchy into the system, set up the organisation, import all employees and then attach strategic initiatives to your CSF´s. 

Once you attach the person accountable, all follow ups are automated with an intelligent nudging algorithm.

KPI Monitor

Monitors strategic KPI´s utilising a range of statistics the way your accounting system monitors financials. Continually tracks implementations and progress.

You can:

  • Build a hierarchy of KPI´s if needed
  • Attach KPI´s to any level in the strategic hierarchy
  • Attach KPI´s to any organisational unit
  • Attach KPI´s to individual and use it for HR and performance

Essentially, all follow ups are taken care of and you can drill down to any detail anytime.

Beyond budgeting

Beyond Budgeting module complements the financial budgeting procedures and ensures comparison between strategic execution, KPIs, and budget allocations.

This strengthens your strategic Budget Review and aligns your actual implementation, spending and deadlines.

Reporting module

The system keeps track of strategy-related initiatives and follows up with reminders to those accountable.

This gives you the same type of overview of your strategic decisions as the financial information you obtain from your budget and balance sheets.

A simple dashboard lets you track the status and progress of all initiatives—individually and collectively: Where are we right now? What needs attention? What needs to be done right now? And by whom?

You can even filter your search to include things like strategic priorities, Critical Factors of Success, divisions and employees.

Automated follow up

DecideAct’s algorithms take care of detailed management with nudges (friendly reminders) that motivate people to finish their tasks on time.

The system is self-learning and adapts to individual preferences and methods of work. Accountable individuals can easily adjust status to limit nudging to the absolute essential.

DecideAct can be customised to limit reminders and nudges to act only as a supportive tool when required. This helps teams to be accountable and responsible for their performance and delivery without pressure of intrusion.
