Strategy Relationship Map​

Large organizations may have hundreds of long-range strategies that are set at various levels of the organization. It's important to have visibility into where the strategies exist and whether they align to the company's strategy or other strategies within the organization. The Strategy Relationship Map provides a visualization as to how different strategies are connected across the enterprise.

Please note this feature is currently in BETA, contact your Customer Success Manager for more information.


The Strategy Relationship Map acts as an enterprise catalog for strategies across an entire organization. With Strategy Relationship Map, you're able to:

  • View all the strategies in the enterprise with transparency like never before​

  • Make strategic decisions based on the relationships between strategies​

  • Understand the impact and performance of individual and connected strategies​

  • View misalignment to see where strategies may be misaligned​

  • Take action by drilling into the details​

  • And much more!

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the success of a Strategy pillar measured?

The success of a pillar is measured by the success of the outcomes. When clicking on a Strategy in the Relationship Map, each Pillar will show an average progress percentage and RAG color for the Objectives aligned.

Is there any weighting in relation to the Outcome progress & Objective progress on the relationship map?
There is no weighting. The outcome's progress solely drives the Strategy's progress. Objective progress is a signal on where translation to execution may be breaking down.
