Here’s how.

The tools you need

With i-nexus, you’ll build plans that link straight back to your strategy

  • Build the plan

    Build a robust plan within our interactive, intuitive x-matrix tool, taking you from true north to your breakthrough results with a top down and bottom-up approach, so that everyone from corporate through to shopfloor team members contribute to the plan
  • Create captivating goals

    Cascade goals down and up your organization, automatically link metrics and resources to one another, and easily spot planning gaps
  • Add your portfolios

    Create portfolios of improvement priorities, attach strategic themes, and build your proposed projects so that work is tightly aligned to your goals
  • Set your targets

    Get everyone from corporate to the shopfloor involved in a shared direction, with goals and work everyone buys into for greater engagement and enthusiasm
  • Define financial goals

    Define your goal’s financial targets, and avoid double-counting across the organization to accurately display and understand your results
  • Prepare for tomorrow

    Use archive, current, and future state modes to call back to previous x-matrix plans, build a current direction on those insights, and prepare for future scenarios, so that disruption is minimized, and you’re ready to adapt

Greater planning transparency

Plan more effectively

i-nexus is the undisputed view of all your plans.

Feed goals down and throughout the organization chart.

Collaborate and build projects to bring that plan to life.

Give your team clarity on how their work feeds into strategy.

And when it’s time to start the planning cycle again, you’ll have a copy of the previous period’s plan to work from.

Embed your processes

i-nexus gets everyone from corporate to the shopfloor involved in the strategic planning process.

However you name your planning processes, i-nexus digitalizes them.

You’ll replicate your processes so they’re not lost in the chaos of spreadsheets and emails, but found and embedded within the same tool that everyone’s using.

And if you don’t know where to start with, we’ll run through our “W” catchball process.

Health check your plan

Check your plan’s health

With everything feeding into i-nexus, leaders can easily review any plan’s health.

Whether it’s your performance targets, the mix of your portfolios, or something as simple as a project missing an owner, you’ll easily see it in i-nexus.

Spot issues in your plans before they’re live, or even as they’re being excecuted, and you can address them – leading to more confidence in closing your strategy to execution gap.

Continous strategic planning

Plan continuously

No plan should sit idle.

Operating conditions change, markets evolve, and you need to adjust.

Free up time for strategic thinking so you can easily plan for future scenarios based on performance data and a fresh x-matrix canvas.
