SUPPOSEDLY FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING BUT DOES A LOT MORE

2018-09-13

Pros

The task management, collaboration, workforce management and project management features are a great plus.

Cons

It might be better if the software can be used in different other languages since it can only be used in English, but, it is a small negativity of the software that can be greatly overlooked.

Cascade - The A Team

2019-09-24

We wanted a tracking tool that would roll up only our priority projects for our leadership teams' reviews.

Pros

Cascade is a great tool for tracking initiatives and using those initiatives to drive performance and KPI's.

Cons

It was too complex for our company that mostly just tracks progress on initiatives.

I've been looking for this app for 20 years.

2016-11-05

I've been looking for a project portfolio management app for a management-by-projects approach that begins with strategic planning. Cascade is a holistic strategy app, integrating strategy planning and strategy execution, two aspects or dimensions of strategy that should not be dissociated or bifurcated into separate apps to begin with.

Serious Strategy Execution Software

2017-06-09

Mainly, we use Cascade Strategy with our clients that don't want their strategic plans to become BOTS (Books On The Shelf).

Pros

Cascade is one of the few that gets that the fundamental unit of strategy implementation is NOT individual goals or tasks - it is people, and Cascade re-emphasizes this point subtly throughout the platform.

Cons

Most importantly, if you go down the path of using strategy management software, just realize that the dynamic connections that you are able to create with the platform will not always easily translate to the printed page.

Cascade focuses attention on what is important

2019-02-04

Real time tracking of key initiative status is difficult to achieve in absence of a tool like Cascade.

Pros

Simple and intuitive - easy to populate focus areas and goals, track performance and extract status in real time.

Cons

UI could be enhanced to introduce drag and drop capability.

Excellent tool, great design and user friendly

2017-11-06

Pros

The alignment between strategy and projects, its very easy to understand how the strategic objetives align with the projects.

Cons

Only 1 language, its a great tool, I think its very important to expand to languages like spanish or french.

Cascade Review

2019-08-15

As a newly merged organisation we needed to be able to track ourselves against the Strategic Plan, and ensure that as a Board-led organisation we could clearly show this.

Pros

The ability to set up levels to match those within our Strategic Plan and Annual operating plans.

Cons

There are some areas that require some fine tuning (restricted access, formatting, ability for graphs) however the team listen to feedback and already some things we suggested have been included in updates.

Great for organisational visibility/ oversight

2017-11-10

Pros

It immediately combines strategy, accountability, progress, reporting, risk and governance so that you get a quick holistic view of the current status.

Cons

I'm not sure I know what these would look like... but i think it is important to keep working on the end-users experience as well as improving the management view.

Cascade has transformed the way we manage our business goals and company strategy.

2017-11-03

Transparency of goals, and alignment of priority. It also enables better accountability for all staff.

Pros

The snapshot reports are great for sharing with others outside of the system and provide an up to date gantt chart of project status.

Cons

The chat function allows you to communicate directly with the Cascade team and get a real time response to any issues you might have or any ideas for improvement.

Great product to execute on strategy and to build a culture around

2020-09-03

It's a great way to keep everyone aligned and accountable to achieving the business strategy but also a good way to build a culture around the vision.

Pros

This is a product that solves a key business problem which is stitching together company, product or project vision to the execution of it.

Cons

Nothing that we have experienced so far.

World Class Customer Care

2018-08-06

The customer service engagement was what really sets Cascade apart. The team are helpful and quick to reply. They have a very clear set of behaviors that align with their values.

Pros

I've not found a platform that consolidates such a wide range of strategy and talent alignment and management tools into one place.

Cons

The interface feels a bit dated perhaps.

Cons

The price is a bit stiff for small mediumsize companies.

This thing is powerful and we at only just starting to appreciate the strength of it now...

2017-11-02

Simple

Pros

Ease of use and with the training videos released more recently it is even easier to understand.

Cons

The training videos and webinars are an absolute must to view. It really does to a-z and the biggest challenge is seeing how the a-z works together
