Onni Matti Manninen and Outi Nummi LATO

Shared structure for planning

In LATO the organization’s strategic objectives (the big picture) are summarized on one page. The objectives are broken down into concrete and time-based goals – The teams and units will plan their actions and performance indicators to execute these given goals. All of this is visualized and structured by LATO Strategy Tool. Your plan for strategy execution remains transparent, simple and measurable.

Understanding of strategic and status

The information on the strategy, KPIs, goals and progress are typically all over the place. The data is scattered on multiple platforms, spreadsheets and documents. It takes a lot of time and effort to compile the data and turn it into a status analysis. In LATO, the data is on one platform, in a one-pager view. Review the big picture and zoom into details. The status and progress are updated directly by the team members via automated notifications. In LATO, the information is always structured and always up to date.
