MAPP is the unique approach to strategic planning, providing organisations and their advisors with a physical tool and an online service which enables them to engage in a collaborative planning process and produce a clear strategic roadmap.
Once the organisation has completed their MAPP plan, it can be transposed onto the MAPP service online, so that the management team can then create task lists, timelines and metrics for each decision that was agreed during the planning process.
By using the MAPP service, organisations are able to update progress against goals in real-time and share that information across the enterprise and with their advisor, board members or other stakeholders who may have an interest in monitoring the progress of the plan.
The MAPP Toolkit
MAPPkit comprises a physical work space, or the MAPP board, as well as a set of card prompts that reflect the most common issuesthat confront most high growth companies. The cards are separated into typical functional areas within an organisation, such as finance, HR, marketing, strategy and operations. With the help of the MAPP Practitioner and the aid of the guide, teams work through each of the cards, one by one and determine whether the issues within each functional area need to be addressed as part of the company’s, individual, strategic plan. The space allocated on the board, forces team members to prioritise tasks, based on a mutually agreed upon time horizon and also allows the team to immediately recognize how certain tasks interact with each other and where obstacles or bottlenecks might arise. Once the team has completed their MAPPkit, they will walk away with a high level plan, which is the first step to establishing the roadmap needed to execute on the company’s goals.
The next step in the MAPP system is for the MAPP Practitioner to translate the company’s MAPP plan intoMAPPonline, so that the management team can then create task lists, timelines and metrics for each decision that was agreed to during the planning process. By using MAPPonline, companies are able to update progress against goals real-time to share that information across the enterprise and with their coach, board members or other stakeholders who may have an interest in monitoring the progress of the plan.
