Overview

Businesses today must keep pace with unprecedented change. Some can react quickly, while others struggle. What separates the winners from the losers?

Harvard Business Review asked 385 readers from organizations with 500+ employees about the planning challenges they face and the tools they use. They found that nine out of 10 use spreadsheets for planning, but only 22 percent are satisfied with them. The conclusion: “Siloed spreadsheet-based planning … can no longer support today’s scale or pace of business.”

Fortunately, there’s a better way forward.

“The New Game Plan for Strategic Planning” is the product of HBR’s in-depth research. The report includes interviews with industry experts, analysis of survey results, illuminating charts, and real-world success stories of organizations that have embraced cloud-based strategic planning.
