Fix the real lack of visibility

Ditch decades-old processes with floating documents and centralize in the cloud, where EVERYONE can engage.


Everyone does things differently, making alignment difficult.

Leverage a standard framework tailored to your entire system so that we focus on OUTCOMES, rather than LANGUAGE.


Dealing with high turnover and a pretty complex org structure?

Every region, college, department, etc. has a workspace unique to them. We’ll work with you to establish exactly how alignment should work across the board. Plug people in and out of the strategy without losing focus on the big picture.


No-one wants to deal with cases of double-work.

Leverage a “central source of truth” for strategy. Push commentary from MS Teams, integrate timelines with your calendar, and bring key metrics into the context of your strategy


Digital transformation is a top priority.

Instant, dynamic board-level views combine with as-needed drill-downs to give context behind school-wide health scoring. Cascade itself is part of digital transformation.

Boards, administrators, and educators all love to work in Cascade.

A strategy execution platform that aligns & unlocks potential across teams, uncovers insights throughout departments, and reveals opportunities for improvement from the top down and ground up.

The big shift is from everyone being enthusiastic & doing lots of work - to that same thing, but in a structured way, inputting information into one place.
