The strategic planning software that puts your company ahead
Prepare, create, and carry out your plan
Strategic planning involves three phases: gathering data in preparation to plan, creating a strategic plan, and finally putting the plan into motion and tracking improvement. A strategic planning tool can help you analyze your mission and make sure your strategy supports it. Lucidspark makes it easy to execute each phase—all in one central location. With an infinite canvas that’s built for collaboration, you can loop in leadership from finance, ops, and sales in real time to carry out key ideas with your entire team.
Visualize your goals to craft the ideal plan
Our strategic planning software lets you lay out, step by step, the way to reach your goals from beginning to end. Visually craft your plan as you call out strategic issues, identify strengths and weaknesses, and predict setbacks. Strategic planning looks different for every company, so Lucidspark offers several strategy planning templates to set your team on the right path. With unlimited space available, your plan can grow and improve with your strategy—plus it remains accessible and up to date for anyone interested.
Easily get your entire organization on board
Lucidspark helps you improve organization-wide goal setting through constant collaboration. Work in real time across teams to get input from stakeholders using comments, @mentions, and even emoji reactions. Sticky notes, shapes, images, and freehand drawing let your team contribute and connect ideas freely—however team members want to express them. Use Breakout Boards for small group work, vote on ideas to make sure everyone’s voice is heard, and organize the whole process using Collaborator Colors that illustrate who’s done what.
Stay connected to the apps you know and love
Our integrations support each stage of your strategic planning. Insert your strategic planning framework into Slack, MS Teams, or a Zoom call to generate ideas and get immediate feedback from collaborators. Export boards directly to Lucidchart for polished documentation, and then import them back to Lucidspark when you need to return to the drawing board. You can even integrate your work with Google Drive to access, edit, and share your work from anywhere. And if you’re currently using Miro, don’t worry—our import helps you move existing boards over to our flexible workspace.

A demo of a sample Lucidspark brainstorming board is shown, with lots of active participation from the four participants across the entire board. Next, a rapid series of closeups demonstrating some Lucidspark features: Writing on a sticky note, drawing a circle around an idea, starting a 30-second timer, crossing an item off an agenda, adding emoji reactions to a sticky note, and sharing a board with collaborators in the share settings. The video then continues to demo features in line with the narrator’s audio for the remainder of the video. The video ends with the Lucidspark logo and tagline “Where ideas ignite.”
