Prakya Blog Thumbnails (8)


Many organizations face challenges when turning their big plans into actual actions and results. Even with a clear direction, they run into issues like unclear priorities, conflicting agendas, siloed teams, and a lack of visibility when trying to turn these plans into tasks for their teams. The real challenge is making sure everyone is on the same page and contributing to shared goals, especially in a constantly changing business world, where showing the value of their work to stakeholders and customers is crucial. 

A big reason for these challenges is the gap between strategy and getting things done. This gap means there’s a disconnection between the big goals of the organization and the day-to-day tasks needed to reach them. This common challenge has a big impact on how well organizations perform, affecting things like alignment, teamwork, communication, transparency, responsibility, and flexibility.

The idea behind Prakya’s Strategy Board 

The execution of strategy requires alignment among different teams throughout the process. Since strategy is a long-term effort, teams need to consistently check their alignment. Top management is responsible for checking and guiding teams to ensure correct execution. 

While many tools document work progress, top management and business teams prefer seeing progress in the context of the overall business strategy. This creates a gap, as explained in the infographic. 

To bridge this gap, Prakya developed a strategy board linking organizational strategy to execution, automatically translating work progress into strategic context. This enables the top management team to make decisions and provide guidance. 

In its current version, this feature ensures perfect alignment between strategy and execution, embodying Prakya’s core principle. As our founder, Raghu Konka, puts it:  

“Teams across the organization see the same data, even if the data is wrong!”
