Tracking and monitoring

Keep an immediate, clear and actionable line of sight on your progress and connect it to your business objectives.

Tracking KPIs and monitoring your progress is crucial to achieving your business objectives.

Whether you’re reporting on a change program, delivering the value of a merger or implementing a new workforce plan, tracking and monitoring is key. In fact, more than 80% of transformations are unsuccessful, partly because of a lack of continuous monitoring.  

So, how do you make sure you always have the answer to questions such as: 

  • Are we closer to our vision? 
  • Which people or positions have been added, removed or changed? 
  • Is our organization’s future aligned with its business strategy?

Perhaps what you measure is what you get. More likely, what you measure is all you’ll get.

Take advantage of Orgvue’s expertise and best practice

Orgvue provides you with the technology to collect data, visualize it, and understand what’s happening in your business, allowing you to quickly and efficiently track progress against early assumptions. It connects data at various points with pre-defined targets, so you can spot opportunities and course-correct initiatives in-flight. It also connects your plan with a detailed, position-level design.

This gives you the ability to:

  1. Make a detailed plan in Orgvue
  2. Use that to implement in a core system
  3. Track the implementation of the plan
  4. Compare actual headcount/cost against the planned at a point in time
  5. Course-correct by refining the design based on a deviation, all in one single place

Track progress against objectives 

Compare actuals against budgets automatically calculate deviations. This can help identify when and where leaders are off-plan. Use forecasted changes to understand the future state impact of upcoming plans, and drill into the detailed breakdowns by month, quarter, or year, and get insight into why or where you’re off plan

See overall headcount and cost trends (blue line) in comparison to your target (dotted line)

Understand the different reasons the headcount and cost shift month over month, and locate the changes


Understand what’s causing shifts month over month

Visualizing net change, by month and department, can help understand high turnover or high growth areas. Understand how internal mobility might be affecting budget: For example, hiring or moving internally can be lower cost than hiring externally. You’ll also be able to see the headcount and cost impacts of hiring, in aggregate and by department/cost center

Visualize historic trends and get insight into where to focus next. Understand what deviations are driven by either headcount or cost (or both), and in which areas of the organization. You’ll know exactly what you can do course-correct: for example, under-budget areas may be struggling to hire, while over-budget areas may need more governance on spend

Understand FTE trends over time
