The Strategy subtab allows you to build Strategy Maps, and drag and drop graphics on the map.
For consumers and analysts, the Strategy Map is read-only. For authors, the Strategy Map can be read/write if it has been set up that way by your administrator.
The read-only Strategy Map displays indicators that show the performance of metrics linked to the objectives displayed. The Strategy Map layout shows the relationship between objectives for your operational area of the enterprise. The indicators show an aggregate overall performance of the metrics you own for each of your objectives. The links between objectives for your enterprise represent your enterprise strategy. Larger arrows correspond to more important strategies. The size of the arrow does not affect how it is reported, but is meant as a visual cue only.
