Strategy Map Software

Strategy maps summarize what a company plans to do in order to improve its business.

Here's an example of a strategy map:

Strategy Map Example

The map is similar in structure to that of a swim lane diagram and in concept to that of a balanced scorecard.

A strategy map, like a swim lane flowchart, will have horizontal visual category divisions or swim lanes, representing different perspectives of a topic. These perspectives, like a typical balanced scorecard, are typically Financial, Customer, Internal (business) Process, and Learning and Growth. Boxes representing different aspects and ideas of each category are organized into the appropriate swim lane.

Strategy maps are especially beneficial when a company is looking to better their sales or reinforce internal processes. They allow improvements to be viewed from several different viewpoints, which assists in the decision process.
