Digital workflow for the strategic process

ALTANA uses our Solyp straegy platform: "Once a year we go through the strategy process, which is organized in a countercurrent form: top-down and bottom-up.

At Group level, top-down targets are defined for the four business units, which in turn set the guidelines for the business lines and the sub-business lines.

When the bottom-up process is completed, the divisional directors and the board gather for the strategy conference. There, strategic options are discussed and goals, strategies and measures adopted for the next three years. The strategic process runs annually from January to June. Once the strategy package has been adopted, we will start our operational budget and long-term planning in the second half of the year."

Results with Solyp

Work and time savings

Up to 50% time savings and standardization for chart creation as well as standardized input masks at all strategic levels

Optimal use of available time

The time frame for the strategy process remains unchanged. However, using the strategic leadership system leaves more time to discuss strategic options and content.

Incorporating qualitative data

SWOT analyzes, market trends, market descriptions and analyzes of competitors and their strategies are no longer recorded in multiple charts, but once in the Solyp platform.
