SES(sm) - Strategic Excellence System

Agile. Sustainable. Relevant. These are words not typically associated with strategic planning and governance of organizational performance. The Strategic Excellence System℠ is a web based application featuring a strategic planning and organizational measurement framework that facilitates the development, planning, and monitoring of your organizational priorities across your organization. The framework aligns directly with the Baldrige criteria and features a fully integrated organizational process flow that supports organizational collaboration, knowledge, and governance. Prioritization of your action plans aligns with organizational goals and objectives and considers the resources needed to deliver on the work committed.

The SES℠ provides an environment for collaboration, accountability, and data driven decision making; ensuring your strategic plan is always relevant and sustainable.  Gone are the days when your strategic plan is developed and monitored via countless numbers of spreadsheets!  A central point of entry ensures the most current version of information is available, system reports present the information needed to develop and monitor your plan. Performance against strategic and tactical plans is sustained for the duration of your strategic planning period featuring an agile approach to allow for changes in the plan based on the most important business priorities.

The home page for the system can be viewed at www.strategicexcellence.net. A complimentary overview of the system can be scheduled by calling the Excellence in Missouri Foundation at 573-659-1234. Evolve from the archaic approach of conducting strategic planning via spreadsheets. The Strategic Excellence System℠ is the only Baldrige based strategic planning system that facilitates full organizational integration using a web based set of tools designed to support agility and sustainability.
