The unique design of the Pathlight Power Analytics will give you the freedom to look at business information from either a “bottom up” or a “top down” view, depending on their preference. A “top down” approach may be used when the Pathlight Power Map models are being defined, and when reviewing proformas (1) as they are being entered into the system. The “bottom up” approach will be most useful when data is being entered into the proformas (i.e., ongoing activities, projects, revenue, and capital). Data entry may be performed by team leaders, supervisors, or designated individuals that are responsible for planning and budgeting.
As the Pathlight Power Map models develop, graphical and textual summaries may be viewed for monitoring progress and critical benchmarking. For example, you may quickly find out how much work effort, costs, or revenue would be required to achieve any given strategy or objective. Conversely, you will be able to see the impact of projects and changes on a particular product or service line. The Pathlight Power Analytics will also provide infrastructural support for other capabilities as they relate to activities such as gap analysis (measuring performance), critical benchmarking, and development of an Opportunity Seriatim to optimize projects or opportunities in the Pathlight Capabilities Framework.
As a conceptual tool, or systematic process, the Pathlight Capabilities Framework provides a means for transforming intuitions and/or situational business dynamics into an easily understood, orderly sequence of implementation steps.
This framework tool originated from practical applications within the small to medium-sized businesses. It can be applied in four different ways: 1) to decompose a product / service concept; 2) to measure product/service performance; 3) to evaluate your business; and 4) to design technology innovation and integration projects.
Pathlight Capabilities Framework employs a dynamic matrix, which maps a business in terms of its goals, purposes, inputs, and outputs to its comparative factors of narrative summary, objectively verifiable indicators (OVIs), means of verification (MOVs), and assumptions.
Pathlight Capabilities Framework includes an implementation of your custom-defined goals, purposes, inputs, and outputs elements as they describe the composition of a project or business proforma. In addition, this tool provides for OVIs through its critical success factor mechanisms, as well as for MOVs through its benchmark measurement/comparison capabilities. Future versions of Pathlight Capabilities Framework will provide greater functionality as it regards the multi-dimensional framework concept, including:
