Cascade delivers on its promise - is very easy to use and provides fantastic functionality

All my staff have access to see our plan, goals and projects. That has greatly assisted their knowledge of the bigger picture and how they can contribute. The reporting functionality is excellent for Board reports, management meetings through to controlling my own tasks or that of my reports.

Cascade has transformed the way we manage our business goals and company strategy.

Transparency of goals, and alignment of priority. It also enables better accountability for all staff.

Cascade - The A Team

We wanted a tracking tool that would roll up only our priority projects for our leadership teams' reviews. The Cascade Team was so amazing. They created ways we could highlight and track so but the product was just was too sophisticated for our needs. I would recommend this product and the team to anyone if it meets their usage needs. It just wasn't the best fit for our team.

Great product to execute on strategy and to build a culture around

It's a great way to keep everyone aligned and accountable to achieving the business strategy but also a good way to build a culture around the vision.

Transparency of goals, and alignment of priority. It also enables better accountability for all staff.

Pros

The Cascade program aligned strongly with the needs of our business. We needed a tool to help us manage our business strategy across 20 different functional departments. We chose Cascade as the concept of cascading goals matched the way our business performed strategic planning. The system allows each of the areas to manage their own strategic plan, whilst enabling visibility and accountability of alignment with the high level business strategy. The transparency of the system is one of it's biggest benefits. At the click of a button you are able to assess the health of the organisation according to its strategic objectives and associated goals. It is very user friendly and easy to customise. In a matter of minutes, anyone can set up team dashboards to use in meetings or as a general communication tool. The snapshot reports are great for sharing with others outside of the system and provide an up to date gantt chart of project status. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone.

Cons

Occasionally you will stumble across features that don't exist in the system which would be useful. The chat function allows you to communicate directly with the Cascade team and get a real time response to any issues you might have or any ideas for improvement. This is really great for efficiency, as you can just continue working through any challenges with the help of the Cascade team. They take the feedback on-board, and we have already experienced a number of system optimisations which have been rolled out as a result of our company's suggestions. It is empowering for the team to have that kind of influence on the software, and really aids in employee engagement.

Pros

Cascade is a great tool for tracking initiatives and using those initiatives to drive performance and KPI's.

Cons

It was too complex for our company that mostly just tracks progress on initiatives. Our leaders found that they could not delegate the updates to their team members, which meant they were using other methods as working documents and then going into Cascade for only the purpose of updating the leadership team. Although it did have KPI tracking abilities it was hard for us to attach metrics for many of our initiatives by their very nature.

It's a great way to keep everyone aligned and accountable to achieving the business strategy but also a good way to build a culture around the vision.

Pros

This is a product that solves a key business problem which is stitching together company, product or project vision to the execution of it. It turns strategy into something tangible and actionable.

Cons

Nothing that we have experienced so far.
