Compare Project Ideas
vote on project impact
Rank Strategic goals
(verb): To align to strategy.
(noun): A tool to help teams focus on the highest impact projects.
StrAlign is a prioritization web app that quantifies the value of projects based on their impact to the strategic goals of the organization. Unlike time-consuming and expensive strategic planning meetings and homegrown excel calculations, StrAlign enables individuals to compare projects relative to each other via a user friendly app, and consolidates the results so that Managers can make data-driven decisions informed by their teams' combined expertise.
Rather than the typical "upvote" popularity contests with other idea/innovation management platforms, StrAlign drives users to make individual instinctual decisions about which project will provide the most impact comparatively speaking. By framing the question in relative terms, and requiring each individual to provide their input on their own, StrAlign harnesses diverse perspectives and experiences and quantifies the results - helping bridge the information gap between decision makers and the individual contributors and subject matter experts on their teams.
StrAlign is a working prototype created by Echo Consulting, a project management services firm. Our goal is to provide a tool that teams can use for ongoing, dynamic prioritization.
