EPM Navigator

Do I have enough insight and control over my organization?

Organisations today are experiencing increasing pressure to become more efficient and agile, while balancing the need for greater insights into their strategy execution. A common challenge for many is the ability to link their strategic planning activities and outcomes to their business planning effort. The organizations who successfully bridge this gap, integrating their strategy and planning, are best positioned to achieve their long-term goals.

The Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Navigator has been designed to help organizations understand the level of maturity of their EPM practice and understand ways to improve.

What is Enterprise Performance Management?

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) is the art of enabling strategy execution in the most efficient and effective way. This means the active management of performance in line with strategy across all areas of the business. It is based on the right and relevant insight and being able to translate this into meaningful decision-making and actions.

Why is effective EPM important?

  • Faster realization of strategy
  • Higher corporate agility
  • Fast decision-making enabled by clear criteria
  • A motivated workforce that understands its contribution to strategy realization
  • Less resources spent on non-value adding activities

EPM is a simple and intuitive methodology, however it seems to be difficult in practice

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) has been around for a long time. Many of its concepts are intuitive and are most likely familiar to you.

And yet, we experience many organizations struggle to put their strategy into practice effectively. More often than not this is driven by the lack of a clear picture of their performance. Many management boards are dissatisfied with their management information. Manual reports and spreadsheet are still common practice and the majority of organizations have no explicit link between strategy and KPIs.

To help organizations address this crucial business process, PwC offers the EPM Navigator which gives organizations practical insights where to improve across seven key components of the Enterprise Performance Management framework.

The seven dimensions of the EPM Navigator
