Delete, a Finnish Group specializing in environmental services implemented LATO tool for their 2016 strategy process in its business units in Finland and in Sweden. Now LATO is being used in the Board work as well as on the operational level. The new tool gives transparency, simplifies the strategy reporting and speeds up the business line management.
A good start
Delete wanted to streamline and speed up their strategy process which was earlier a separate project carried out every six months.
– I was positively surprised by the interest and speed with which our organization welcomed LATO. It is often somewhat difficult to introduce a new tool, but according to my experience the implementation of LATO was one of the best cases at Delete, Janika Vilkman, the General Councel of Delete tells.
– Our people learned at once how to use LATO, mainly because the tool is easy to use as is the excellent mobile app, too. At this stage I can only give positive feedback, Vilkman continues.
Leadership into full speed with LATO
– We have now digitalized the goal setting and follow up of our strategy process. LATO supports and drives a chain of strategic goals, actions and KPIs for different organizational levels. We can follow the actions linked to strategic goals as part of our monthly Business Review or any time via the mobile app. The Board has a better grasp of the strategic agenda and the reporting cycle is much faster, Vilkman says.
– Our business leaders have noticed how LATO supports and speeds up the line management and leaves more time for leading the actual business in our fast moving operating environment. We now have the whole group data stored in one central place and we have more visibility to the implementation of strategy, she concludes.
By eliminating and automating the management routines, LATO allows for better use of time and makes the leadership more cost effective.
