Business operations

Drive business success

Make company-wide goals and initiatives transparent so each department understands exactly what needs to be accomplished

Establish a model for excellence

Business operations help organizations thrive. You manage the inner workings of your company, constantly seeking ways to generate revenue, increase productivity, and reduce costs. Develop your operational plans in a purpose-built workspace in Aha! Roadmaps. Use built-in strategic models — including Lean Canvas, SWOT, and Porter’s 5 Forces — to identify growth opportunities and drive progress. Explore bold new strategies on a whiteboard and evaluate the best path forward. Then define a clear set of measurable, timebound objectives to crystalize your foundation for organizational success.

Craft your business strategy


Put your strategy into action

Make your company goals and initiatives transparent — so everyone understands what needs to be accomplished and when. Create a strategic roadmap in Aha! Roadmaps to visualize how functional groups can build on other teams' work. This steers the tactical work that each department — including marketing, engineering, and IT — will do to support business objectives. Establish a clear roll-up relationship between the work each functional group is doing and your overall strategy to see how everything ties together. Now the entire organization can move forward in unison.

Take initiatives forward


Report on impact

How are you performing against the annual plan? What is the status of goals and initiatives? Knowing these answers is critical for gauging organizational progress. But it can be difficult to track reliably. Use the powerful analytics capabilities in Aha! Roadmaps to report on key business and financial metrics in real time. Automatically calculate the percentage complete on all your objectives and create a live dashboard to keep leadership informed. This makes it easy to show the impact of your strategic initiatives on business growth.
