The benefits of Amplon
Easy way to formulate effective strategy
A powerful strategy matrix (X matrix) combines objectives, development initiatives, and KPIs into a single view. Amplon visually communicates the entire story of your strategy with one simple, easy-to-read matrix.
The X matrix helps management at each level to ensure that the focus is clear: a few carefully selected objectives are achieved through a fixed amount of priority projects and tracked by a handful of leading indicators.
Effective way to cascade down objectives and development projects
Ultimately, people are the ones who execute the chosen strategy across the organization. Amplon ensures an effective way to communicate and cascade these strategy objectives to everyone.
With cascading objectives, each organizational unit formulates objectives relevant to them. However, everyone retains focus on the main organizational goals because of easily accessible visual matrixes and reports in Amplon.
Amplon is especially powerful in managing projects that require contributions from many organizational units or teams. The cross-functional projects will be visible and easily updated where necessary while still allowing each unit or team to have its individual X matrix.
