Planview Releases Global Benchmark Report that Reveals How Leading Companies Accelerate On-Strategy Delivery in Times of Change

Share

Planview, a global leader in Portfolio Management and Work Management solutions, today published a global report that unlocks how companies are successfully responding to continuous market disruption, accelerating innovation and executing on their business strategies. Based on a first-of-its-kind study, the report, titled “The State of Strategy Execution: Embracing Uncertainty to Adapt at Speed,” uncovers why many companies are challenged to pivot strategy in times of change, and provides pragmatic recommendations for companies to adapt more quickly to shifting conditions and disruptive events, and deliver quality business outcomes.

“This study was designed to answer a deceptively simple question: Why can some companies quickly adapt and even accelerate strategy execution during times of significant change, and others just get by?,” said Patrick Tickle, Chief Product Officer at Planview. “That question is of utmost importance not only today while we navigate the pandemic but for the foreseeable future. Market disruptions are no longer the exception. Disruption is the norm, and the smartest companies have learned how to not just survive but thrive in environments of constant change.”

Segmenting respondents into categories of Leaders, Challengers and Laggards, a clear picture emerged of what successful companies are doing and that others can replicate, including:

  • Prioritizing speed when it comes to making decisions and executing faster
  • Implementing technology that delivers faster business insights from data
  • Adjusting strategies, funding, and operating plans with short-interval planning cycles
  • Improving the prioritization process to realign resources to the most important work
  • Utilizing Lean and Agile business practices throughout the organization

This vital report goes beyond just analyzing why some organizations are more successful than others in quickly adapting to market disruptions. It provides a roadmap for how other companies can achieve success, streamline business processes to prioritize speed and quality, accelerate innovation, and improve strategic outcomes.

“Reducing the gap between strategy and execution becomes even more important as the pace of external disruption increases, and this report provides a clear blueprint about how leading companies are doing exactly that,” said Tickle. “We found that the most successful companies are following a similar recipe for success. They are building speed into their business operations to adjust to constant change. They have shorter, more adaptable planning cycles that enable them to respond to shifts in real-time. They remove internal barriers that stand in the way of adaptability. They resist the lure of the status quo. And they use technology and agile processes to build speed and quality into the way they execute on strategy.”

Based on a global benchmarking analysis of nearly 1,000 business and technology professionals at organizations across a wide range of industries around the world, the survey was commissioned by Planview and conducted by independent research firm Lawless Research. Results uncovered why many companies struggle to quickly respond to change and disruption:

  • Complex governance or approval processes (38%)
  • Unclear or conflicting priorities (33%)
  • Lack of resources to complete all approved projects (31%)
  • Lack of organizational alignment (departmental silos) (31%)

Survey Methodology

Planview commissioned a survey, undertaken by an independent research organization, Lawless Research, in December 2020. Nearly 1,000 business and technology professionals across multiple countries were surveyed, including: Australia, France, Germany, United States, and the UK. Companies were from a range of industries, including banking and financial, technology, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, business services, government and public sector, travel and hospitality, engineering, and more. The corresponding report provides pragmatic recommendations for business, technology, and finance leaders seeking to create a tight connection between strategy and execution, adapt more quickly to shifting conditions and disruptive events, and deliver quality business outcomes.

Evobrutinib is the First and Only BTK Inhibitor to Demonstrate Reduction of a Key Biomarker of Neuronal Damage and Inflammation in Patients with MS16.4.2021 10:00:00 CEST | Press release

Merck, a leading science and technology company, will present data from a Phase II placebo-controlled randomized trial at the 2021 American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting showing that the investigational Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor evobrutinib significantly reduced blood neurofilament light chain (NfL) levels, a key biomarker of neuronal damage and inflammation, in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Elevated blood NfL levels have been shown to be associated with damage to neurons and inflammation and may predict future brain atrophy and disease progression. “Blood NfL is a biomarker that may allow monitoring of disease activity and treatment response, which could be less burdensome and more sensitive than other standard clinical measures for MS patients,” said Prof. Jens Kuhle, MD, PhD, Head Multiple Sclerosis Centre, University Hospital Basel. “These data provide key insights into the role evobrutinib may play in modulating the clinical course of MS and fur
