Why strategic planning?
Strategic planning is the process of coordinating and aligning activities and projects to achieve strategic innovation goals. It can serve your entire organization as an agile tool to better allocate resources, identify synergies or gaps, and move growth and innovation programs from strategy to implementation.
Prioritize innovation projects that support your strategic objectives
Use customizable ITONICS Matrix visualizations to assess projects and collaboratively prioritize the most promising initiatives. Organize and structure project information to provide quick views on objectives, risks, workflows, budgets, and KPIs.
Plan projects using Kanban boards and move from planning to implementation on one single platform. Make sure that multiple players act together and connect projects to trends, technologies, startups, risks, and more.
Keep track of innovation projects
Use ITONICS best practice templates to create roadmaps fast, and quickly understand the current state of multi-layered innovation projects. Plan your projects along timelines and milestones, and easily follow how projects progress.
Visually identify bottlenecks or critical hurdles, or determine synergies that help you make bold decisions to speed up time to market. Filter to focus on specific projects or view all projects and their dependencies in one glance.
Create alignment and set a clear direction
The roadmapping process involves iteration, as well as two-way feedback at every step. Get multiple players to act together on one single point of truth. Synchronize the planning of project execution across business units, verticals, and teams and streamline cross-functional collaboration.
Forecast and plan future project development paths and keep teams and stakeholders informed with updates on the ITONICS platform. A product Roadmap may be updated weekly, whereas a business unit-wide Roadmap might only need to be updated once a quarter or yearly.
Improve transparency and centralize decision-making. Get everyone on board and moving forward. Together.
Shape and implement technology strategy
Bring your technology strategy to life by connecting complex activities on a roadmap. Link trends and technologies to innovation efforts to get real-time oversight on developments and steer your projects accordingly.
Align innovation and R&D goals with company strategy. Identify implications for different units in time to reduce risk and maximize synergies.
Use roadmaps to develop or introduce new technologies, assign deliverables to responsible units or individuals, and keep everyone informed on progress.
