ClearPoint is also one of the few strategy and performance management tools on the market built by managers, for managers. Ted Jackson and Dylan Miyake, ClearPoint’s co-founders and graduates of Harvard Business School and the Sloan School of Management at MIT respectively, have a passion for effective strategy management and over 40 years of combined experience providing management consulting services to public-sector organizations. Because of their background, they have a unique perspective that has driven this user-friendly tool. According to Miyake, “There’s no need for an expensive and complex IT project to configure ClearPoint. Like standard office software such as PowerPoint, this system puts the control in the user’s hands with accessible scorecards and dashboards that seamlessly integrate qualitative and quantitative data.”
More than just a software, ClearPoint has also built the Community Dashboard: a customized public facing website that allows cities and counties to share their key measures and projects with citizens. ClearPoint recognized the need for public-sector organizations to share their reports and results online, and created the Community Dashboard to make this historically difficult and drawn-out process as painless and seamless as possible. Through the dashboard, local governments are able to keep their public-facing websites in sync with their strategic information in ClearPoint. This ensures that citizens have the most updated results of their local government’s strategic efforts.

As performance management in the public-sector evolves, ClearPoint will evolve with it. Jackson remarks, “ClearPoint 11.0, will include a new set of features and functionality implemented directly as a result of our clients’ feedback. We value what they have to say and actively reach out to ensure we are giving them the enhancements they want.” This version of ClearPoint promises augmentation of the Measure Library’s feature-set, a full recycle bin, and increased flexibility with summary reports. And with that, the tool will make performance management and reporting in public sector even more seamless.
