Growth management software provides an operating framework for implementing best practices around strategic planning, organizational communication and company-wide execution on key business priorities.
Align creates the workspace to adopt and manage the business habits consistently used by high-growth companies. Daily Huddles, One Page Plan Tools, Priorities, KPIs and Critical Numbers help you maintain focus on the things that matter most to moving your business forward.
Most businesses go through the process of creating a plan but often don’t follow through, as things get lost during rapid changes or the day-to-day shuffle. Align gives you a structure for organizing your planning sessions, sharing the outputs of the session throughout the company and turning them into action items.
Clear and efficient communication is essential for any successful team. Quick and efficient daily and weekly communication ensures important info is being shared across teams. Align’s Huddle Tools record everyone’s updates allowing easy visibility into what is going well and where team members may need help. This gives you the opportunity to problem solve before things become unmanageable.
Map out, assign, and complete key business priorities that directly contribute to your company goals. Measure each priority with assigned KPIs and have employees update the KPI measurement on a daily or weekly basis to see how you’re performing on key goals.
Unlike task or project management software, Align is specifically built for managing the business at the strategic level, above the day-to-day details — not just for your daily tasks or project specific workflows and schedules. Align is not meant to replace a project management, task management or customer relationship management platforms, but rather work in tandem with them. Align will keep you focused on the strategic business priorities that will help you achieve your long-term goals.

Setting objectives and measuring key results is the equivalent of identifying goals, developing aligned business priorities and implementing KPIs to measure progress as you execute.
