Formulate Vision & Strategy

cordin8 Brainstorming enables teams to generate, categorize, evaluate and prioritize ideas anonymously for SWOT analysis, potential strategies, etc. in order to engage in substantive discussions necessary to formulate the vision and strategy.  

Setup Mission Control

Mission Control is the hub for the network of teams that will deliver on the strategy.  Objectives are linked to cordin8 TeamMachines™ --where teams plan and manage an initiative--for communication with Mission Control.  Distributed reporting makes it easy to collect KPI actuals from measure reporters.

Brainstorming is a fundamental team tool for "figuring-it-out" work 

cordin8 provides a rich set of capabilities to enable divergent thinking so the team can explore potential pathways.  Then, reduce, combine, and refine possibilities in order to converge on a vision, strategy, plan, recommendation, position, or decision.

Coordinating Agile Release Trains (ARTs)
