GOAL STEERING SYSTEMS
There have been a number of different systems and software for goal steering on the market for many years now. Indeed, traditional systems such as Excel, Balanced Scorecard and Advanced Business Intelligence are used by most companies today. These systems contribute to enhanced results and are often good at visualizing outcomes, i.e. results.
Many existing applications capture the status quo and outcome, i.e. once results have been realized, but fail to identify the acceleration needed to accelerate towards the result. These applications are fine if “more of the same” is enough to develop the company, but they are not suitable for companies that need to change quickly.
In the last few years, more agile applications have appeared, which have become popular within IT companies and project organisations in particular. They often create an increased level of engagement and ownership by breaking down goals into activities for individuals, often complemented by a method for frequent follow-up meetings. However, this type of software lacks provable progress and does not provide a link to financial success.
