Simple ResultMaps

Studying and working closely with some of the world’s most visionary organizations has made it clear that they concentrate primarily on the process of alignment, not on crafting the perfect “statement.”
— Jim Collins

What: ResultMaps let you start simple and start quickly.  You can stay simple forever, or  develop a big picture approach (i.e. strategic plans, objectives, key results)  later, over time.  

Why:  As Jim Collins points out, the process of building alignment is the most critical aspect. Don't get mired in the 'crafting' words and plans.

Where: In ResultMaps, start entering what you are working from your "Today" view.   Progress to add  mission,  focus areas, and objectives.  Later you can focus on your overall vision and values.

 

 


Where to focus

Build 1-2 focus areas.  Create an objective or two in each (the minimum number you need).  For each objective, enter the measurements you'll use as key results. 

From there build and align your action plans or projects.  Keep in mind you can create a project as simply as entering a bulleted list in the Text Genius.  

Tip:  It's still useful to browse the Big Picture Section to orient yourself.  If you feel mired, move to the next section or contact us.  We'd love to help.
