Business Strategy

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
- Marcel Proust.

People Matters will invest significant time in fully understanding your organisations Vision and Strategy to assess specifically what needs to be achieved in respect of your people resources. 

Our core approach is to understand your business so that we can help you devise a people strategy and formulate clear business plans to achieve your objectives. We will ensure that your Business Plan is people focussed, practical and equally easy to interpret and cascade right through the organisation from the most Senior Executive to the most junior casual employee. The use of the Balanced Scorecard as an effective Performance Measurement system and Strategy Maps which will convert intangible assets into tangible outcomes will help deliver exceptional results.

People Matters will ensure you get the right balance in performance management, measurable targets and engagement to ensure your people assets deliver your business strategic aims and achieve your Vision. People Matters will help drive Business Growth, Competitiveness and Profitability through your people resources, delivering success through HR. 

Balanced Scorecard

The Balanced Scorecard is a revolutionary Performance Measurement system to enable companies to quantify critical intangibles such as people, information and culture. It is a Management System that can engage the energies, knowledge and abilities of people throughout the organisation to translate your Business Strategy into reality. Management processes built around the scorecard enable individual and organisational goals to become aligned and focussed on implementing financial plans, budgets and long term company strategy. 

The Balanced Scorecard measures your business across four categories:  Finance, Customer, Internal processes, Learning and growth.

Strategy Maps  “… a dynamic visual tool to communicate your strategy”

Strategy Maps provide the missing link between formulating your strategy and implementation. Strategy Maps allow you to clarify your business strategies for simple clear communication to employees and to identify key internal processes that drive strategic success.

  • Understand your Business Strategy, Vision and Values
  • Work with you on devising a Business Plan which maximises your people resources
  • Identify how your people resources will deliver that plan
  • Implement through engagement, communication and Strategy Maps
  • Review, measure and evaluate using customised Scorecard principles
