Strategic Logic Modeling with Strategy Maps and Results Chains


A Strategy Map is a diagram that describes how an organization creates value by connecting strategic objectives in explicit cause-and-effect relationship with each other in the four BSC objectives (financial, customer, processes, learning and growth). Strategy Maps are a strategic part of the Balanced Scorecard framework to describe strategies for value creation.

Results Chain is a systematic approach for linking desired results/outcomes and resource decisions, while considering all of the required conditions for realization

When combined Strategy maps define the desired results/outcomes, and Results chains map out the inputs, activities and outputs needed to achieve each outcome identified in the Strategy map.

The combination provides an holistic overview that visualizes opportunities to consolidate activities to implement the strategy.


This interactive workshop will cover the development of creating Strategy Maps and combining these with Results Chains to create a strategic plan that is both holistic and implementable.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
