Springville, Utah, USA—Management consulting firm, DecisionWise, released a new online action planning tool for leaders to create and track both organizational and individual goals. Named Depot, the app enables leaders and employees to create, track, and collaborate on goals across the organization.
One of the uses of Depot is for action planning based on employee engagement survey results. For example, once the organization sets the overall action items for the company, leaders down the ranks can create goals based on “tagged” organization initiatives as well on as their own local priorities. Goals “roll up” all the way to the executive team so leaders can see progress, add goals for those they manage, or comment on action plans.
DecisionWise Technology Director, Micah Wardell, explained that “Depot was designed to make goal-setting easy and to provide visibility and accountability throughout the organization. This system replaces all of the sticky-notes, to-do lists, and spreadsheets leaders use to track their current goals and report on progress.”
Depot is set up with the organization leadership roll-up structure by business unit, department, and function. Tags are used to create themes used for each goal. Reports show progress by department and tags. Goals appear in various stages such as “in progress” or “overdue” and a progress bar highlights the advancement for each item. Marking tasks as complete and comparing completion against expected deadlines enables leaders to become truly accountable.
DecisionWise CEO, Dr. Tracy Maylett, observed that “Organizations typically struggle to roll out their employee engagement results and formulate action plans. Depot remedies this problem by providing a simple tool for managers to set goals while increasing collaboration and accountability to drive progress.”
Complimentary 30-day trials are being offered for a limited time to allow end-users to experience the tool at no cost. Visit www.decision-wise.com/depot-trial to participate.
