Briefing Books

Enhance the effectiveness of your regular review activity by rapidly pulling together any collection of views from SAP Strategy Management into a single collection so that participants can arrive aware of the issues and ready to collaborate in informed discussion and developing decision making.

SAP Strategy Management’s Briefing Book component enables organisations to formalise the operational review process by making it easy to capture, comment on, consolidate and present certified information on goals, initatives and metrics. With structured operational reviews, users can consolidate information captured from anywhere within SAP Strategy Management into a unified story of performance.

When viewed within SAP Strategy Management, these captured reviews can ‘go live’ so users can explore the latest performance. Alternatively printing the Briefing Book to PDF, incorporating external PDFs if required, automatically compiles a document including the comments on the views that can be shared more widely or published externally to SAP Strategy Management, distibuting performance insights to constituents that do not have direct access to the system. Coming direct from the system, all information contained in Briefing Books is ‘certified’, so that concerns over data accuracy and validity are minimised.
