Nashville represents one of the most progressive local governments in the nation, in terms of their focus on outcomes and aligning the organization to these goals
East Norriton, PA (PRWEB) October 8, 2007
ActiveStrategy, Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Strategy Execution consulting and software, announced that the Metropolitan Government of Nashville, Tennessee has chosen to automate its performance management framework with ActiveStrategy Enterprise (ASE) software.
In 2002, the Metropolitan Government of Nashville began deploying a government-wide strategic planning and performance measurement initiative called "Results Matter." This initiative has sought to launch a "managing for results" methodology into the systems and culture of the Nashville government. Its aim is to provide every department with the tools and data needed for all employees to focus on delivering results for customers and to align the organization so everyone knows how they contribute at all levels - an important step in driving accountability.
Thirty-eight departments and agencies began the Results Matter program by producing Strategic Business Plans that focus on both operational and strategic elements. These plans were previously housed in an internal database and will now be loaded into ActiveStrategy Enterprise software. ASE will allow employees to review and interact with the data, which they were not able to do before. With ASE's enhanced tools like dashboards and briefing books, Nashville will have real-time views of its Business Plans. Departments will have the necessary information available to help them make good business decisions that produce results for the government's customers - its citizens.
Seeking long-term success for Nashville, ActiveStrategy has partnered with CIBER, a leader in building, implementing, and supporting IT systems for local governments. "CIBER is very pleased to partner with ActiveStrategy in support of this engagement for the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County. We have a successful history of serving state and local government and look forward to working with one of the premier local government operations in the country," stated John Wood, CIBER's Area Director for Tennessee and Kentucky.
"Nashville represents one of the most progressive local governments in the nation, in terms of their focus on outcomes and aligning the organization to these goals," said Michael Brazukas, Vice President of Executive Consulting, ActiveStrategy, Inc. "It is truly exciting for our Government Practice Area to have Nashville as a client, and we look forward to supporting their move to the next level of performance management."
