MyStrategicPlan, an online strategic planning and performance management tool developed by M3 Planning, has been named a Finalist in the Best New Product of the Year category in the 5th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business.

The web-based application has more than 3,000 users and helps them develop a strategic plan, track goals, and create professional reports.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run -- worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world's premier business awards. More than 1,200 entries were submitted for consideration in 50 categories, including Best Executive, Best Entrepreneur, and Best Community Involvement Program. Erica Olsen, M3 Planning Vice President of Marketing and co-developer of MyStrategicPlan, welcomed the news, "It is an honor to be recognized by the Stevie Awards for Women and selected as a Finalist. This is a testament to the hard work of our staff and in particular, Nancy Olsen, Vice President of Business Development, Michael-Anne Hougland, Product Development Manager, and Vanessa Lindeberg, Client Services Administrator."
Finalists were chosen by business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging. Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists during final judging, and winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis hotel in New York on Friday, November 14. "Being named a Finalist in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is an important achievement," said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards. "It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of recognition. We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition."
MyStrategicPlan was also a finalist this year in The 2008 American Business Awards and was presented with the 2008 award for Best Application Service Provider Interactive Application by the Web Marketing Association's annual Internet Advertising Competition in March. That was the second consecutive win for the top honors in the Internet Advertising Competition after also being a previous Standard of Excellence award winner.
