The University of Helsinki has decided to acquire QPR Business Operating System (QPR BOS) to support its strategy implementation. The University and its faculties will design their strategy-aligned implementation plans with the help of the system. The working name of the new strategic planning system is SUUNTA, and the system is based on QPR’s comprehensive QPR Business Operating System Suite. Especially QPR Metrics will be made use of in the early stages, as well as advanced user interfaces. The decision to acquire the system is based on a public tender.
“Through the SUUNTA system the university management and faculties aim to ensure that their chosen strategy can be executed. We chose QPR because of their strong expertise in every area of the solution. Out-of-the-box strategy map solution area is especially useful in enabling an easy way to communicate strategy, choose appropriate actions, follow up on the execution of those actions, and manage risks. QPR has strong evidence of being able to implement information systems for strategy execution for large organizations worldwide,” says Janne Sariola, Head of Planning at the University of Helsinki.
The implementation will include content description, requirement specification based functionality refinement and realization using agile methods, integration with other IT systems, testing, and training of the administrative staff.
The system includes, among others, the following functionalities: Strategy map, action plans, monitoring of the execution of the plans, risk management, resource planning and monitoring, as well as integrations.
