This article shows how Initiatives operate within the Strategic Roadmap.
Initiatives serve as the highest level of organization in your Strategic Roadmap and act as an umbrella term under which multiple recommendations can be nested. Recommendations are quarterly assignments whereas initiatives can span many quarters or years. This organizational structure breaks down long-term strategic actions into quarterly objectives. While an initiative is not shared with other clients and assigned individually, it can be templated in order to be used for other clients. See our article on templates.
